I got a Celeron 700 MHz and its OCed to 1.05 ghz now. My case temp display shows the CPU at 80-95 F (32-25 C) when browsing net and under load about 102-105 F (38-42 C?) Is it safe to OC the cpu to 1.4 ghz or will it fry out. This is my secondary system so not to concerned but if i can i would love to :D.

well dont go right from 1.05 to 1.4...do it slowly....try 1.1ghz, see how that works, then try 1.2ghz, and so on. Be careful..dont want to go above 50C full load. Also, you might want to ask a mod to move this topic to the proper forum. =) Goodluck!

First, this thread should be moved to the proper forum.

Second, those temperatures are fine. You can try overclocking it further if you want, but don't expect anything big.

Ugg, im kind of a newb to this site and i have it in my favs and it goes right to the Nvidia graphics card section and i didnt realize what i was doing untill it was done. What program should i use to OC because the bios only has 700, 1050 and 1400 mhz.
