Yeah it's fine although you have only loaded the one core as such you still do not have the max temps yet intill both cores are run at 100%, same goes for stability. you need to run that program twice at the same time.

It's such a slight OC that you should not need any over volting i belive.

I set all my voltages to Auto (went from 2.66ghz to 3.2ghz) and it works just fine.
I run with same Fsb/Multi as you do but with older cpu.

I actually ran like that on stock fan up untill yesterday (for about two and a half months i think) and it was just fine. I installed a CNPS9700 NT and Im quite happy with it too. On full speed, it lowerd idle with 2-3c and full load it lowerd even more (between 5-7c). Not that I was in the danger zone yet tho. Just to ease my mind now that summer is comming.

Wasn't much of a problem installing it I belive. But it's more work compared to the pushpin solution on the stock fan.

you have to secure a framework around the cpu, that is screwed together with a plastick x-bracket on the underside of the mobo. Alignment on these two peices is important, on the underside you have to make sure it dont conflict with any pins that might be in the way. It was a rather tight fit for me. Once the frame work is in place you secure the Heatsink to it with a bracket and two screws, one on each side. I had to hold down the bracket pretty hard to secure the screws as it's bent in such a way that is applies pressure on the cpu to make a firm fit.

Check out "how to install" on there product page
http://www.zalman.co.kr/ENG/product/...ad.asp?idx=165

Keep in mind there are two versions of the cooler, the NT and LED. They perform the same as both are copper based, (NT has a black finish, LED is copper color). But the main difference is how the fan is controlled. With LED you get Fanmate 2, a manual controll unit and with NT you don't as it uses PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) so your mobo needs to support this (makes it possible to controll fan speed from bios) This is 4 pins.
Should you go with one of these *I do reccomend it*, keep in mind the cooler is big and takes alot of space, it's almost 15cm high.
