I know OC'ing is not only for gaming but I don't run very much aplications at once, so I don't think it'll make any difference. But since it won't consume unnecessary power, I see no reason not to leave the OC on.
Actually I'm not worrying about my temps, I set the bios to warn me on 60 C ( I know 60 C isn't high but I just leave it to warn me at that, to be in the safest side ).
Would running the fan at max speed shorten its lifespan? Also, would that consume higher power? And is there a way to manually control the fan speed? I don't really think my CPU needs all of that speed when I'm doing nothing but chatting on MSN and having FireFox on.
Thanks again and sorry for many questions
