    that's fine.
    touching 63c occasionally should not be a problem

    Hmm that's odd. I stressed it again the same way and this time it got to a max of 54C. Nothing higher....

    54C under MAXIMUM load at 2729MHz @1.475V. How's that?

    I'm going to overclock some more, see how stuff goes.

    Yea, I figured out only closing certain svchosts gives you that super error :p

    EDIT: I happen to remember that exact number... 2729 because thats how many MHz I got out of my old P4 Northwood 2.26 GHz... Although I'm sure a dual core athlon 64 running at 2729MHz is a LOT faster than a P4 running at 2729MHz.

    You mean at 2804MHz ;). Still running dual prime95 to make sure it's stable. MAX load for this (dual prime95) is 63... Idle is 37C. Chipset is 49C. Interesting, chipset required a 0.025V increase to let my system be recognized as an NF590 SLI. Otherwise it was "unknown". Ofcourse, all this when I upped the CPU, otherwise it's normal.

    :( Now I feel really jealous lol. Hopefully soon-ish I will get a Dual Core (although I'm limited at FX60 for the fastest possible because I was an ***** and got Socket 939 instead of AM2...) But then, I still wanna see your 3dMark scores :) if you have em for 3dmark2001, 3dmark03, or 3dmark05, PM me with em plz :)

    Meh, dropped it down to 2750MHz. It wanted 1.55V in the end to be stable at the above clocks, and went to 65C, so I dropped it. Chipset volts went back to normal, this baby went back to 1.475, and temps went back to ~54.

    I logged the temperatures when running 3DMark 2001se and 3DMark 2005.

    Max on 2001se was: 47C
    Max on 2005 was: 49C

    Not bad for a 750MHz overclock.
