    To CMH, I appreciate what you are saying,but you have to admit that seeing a coretemp of 95c!!! on a new computer is hair-raising!,no matter where it came from! The Arctic Freezer Pro 7 got rave reviews at anandtech.com,dropped temps 15c on install. We have to believe SOMETHING,so I'm inclined to go with engineer's at INTEL,since it's their fab. I'm not really an OC'er,just trying to do best I can do. Steve Walton at Legion Hardware.com has OC'ed e6400 to over 3 ghz with NO voltage increase. I'd be happy to get Vista Rating up to 5.5, have invested -$800 (with 22" screen,Vista Ultimate,specs above) Appreciate your help . Don J

    They don't give manuals at these prices,and users manual on HD doesn't even LIST bios,so I'm on my own (again!) DJ

    What model is your Gateway anyway?
    Or, what Motherboard is installed?

    I must've missed that part about 95C.... I would've told you that there was a problem there in the first place.... Don't think the computer would boot at that kind of temperatures.

    I've got my E6420 At 3.2Ghz with no voltage increase, so I can say I believe that review :D
