Well guys, I finally got the nerve to OC my system some. And it booted up at 3GHz first time. I have yet to run any stress tests though- but I think I'll hold off on doing that for now, check my "idle" temps:
Yup, with only a few light background services running (Steam, lightscribe, Sidebar, Everest, etc) it hovers in the low to mid 50s- and that is well too hot for my liking.
So, I'm gonna' drop it down to about 2.8 and see how she be.
Though I'm curious, what voltage would you gusy recommend I use for 2.8? Right now I'm at 1.425- could I bring it down to maybe 1.00 and still have enough juice?
