Re: Is this too much or am I wussing out?
If it reaches 59*C in a stress test, then you would probably be fine going a little higher, maybe up to 65*C because you're temps will hardly ever reach that level during normal use. However, if it's reaching 59 just gaming or usual load activities, then going over 60 might not be the best idea. As far as the NB and VTT voltage, theres no harm in raising them slightly, unless the voltage limits on P35s are drastically different then the 680i, I'm running 1.39v on my NB and about 1.5 VTT.
