Alright, well, I think i've reached my max overclock. I'm @ 3.6 and have 50C load at 71F ambient temperature. I want to leave a bit of room for increased ambient.

I'm chillin' at 3.4ghz with a 45C load temp in coretemp/realtemp and 50C load in speedfan. On 3.6ghz I was at 50Cload in coretemp/realtemp and 56C load in speedfan. I think I can run it at 56C load if speedfan is correct, but I want to be safe for now.

what do you guys think? Should I just run 3.6ghz 24/7? I'm not sure what temp reading to believe. If it's really only 50C at 3.6 I think it would be alright running the processor at that temperature for extended periods. Realtemp and coretemp say 50C and speedfan and hwmonitor say 56C.
