I can get from stock 2.83 to 3.2ghz -3.3ghz, idle ~45, but on FULL load shes loading up to 85 degrees, that cant be safe ? and in prime 95 only she sky rockets to 100+ and sometimes just powers off (im guessing built in protection to not fry the cpu)
So has anyone oc'd using the stock HSF?
I don't let my duo get over 55C after overclocking and I'm running it at 1.5 volts.
