Default Re: QX9650 overclocking?

I've dropped my voltage down to 1.29 but has had no impact on my temps they still seem to be the same? When i first boot up with the QX9650 at 1.55v from my E4300 again the temps where the same. Very strange. Infact my BIOS reads temps higher the core temp does. 47C in BIOS core temp 43C.

I was really suprised i got to 1600MHz FSB with little trouble, clearly my E4300 couldn't handle the FSB when i tried aming for a 100% overclock.

Tried shooting for 4GHz this time with 1.440v but temps have shot right up idle is 50C up from 43C @ 1.4v and underload if's 66C vs 55C.

Funny enough i have had no temp diffrence from 1.29 - 1.4v
