I have been considering this for some time now and I decided its time to post something on this.
I did a little research and was getting confused when I was stress testing my CPU in Prime95. In the below picture it shows my computer set up for the blend test. What is really weird is that the temperature only goes up to a max of 35C. Never over that, and I have Quite n' Cool enabled if this makes a difference.
Temp 1 is the Whole CPU
Temp 2 is Core 0
Temp 3 is Core 1
HD0 is the HDD
And Temp 1 under HD0 is the Motherboard temperature.
So then I checked in CPU-z and Found out that my CPU was not going above a 5x multiplier or a 1000 Mhz Core Speed. Usually it increase the Multiplier when it goes to 100 percent, but it hasn't done that in a while(when I check CPU-z every once and a while).
My CPU is the 5600+ X2 ( not the new 65 TDP ones)
My RAM is 2Gb of this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145034
Ram is set to auto timing in the BIOS and is set to 5-5-5-15 or something, I will check if needed.
I have the ASUS M2N32 SLI-Deluxe Wireless Edition, I love the BIOS, just pointing it out, it has an auto OC feature were you can chose what Percentage of an OC you want. I was wondering if i should use this.
Again, I am wondering what I should be able to achieve with this hardware and some guidance, as I have never Overclocked before.
