Re: Overclock question
pretty much. don't see why you can't read your core temps...i can. at 3.57ghz my temps at full load are 46. I can go higher, but I have no need really. here's the thing, if you have an aftermarket heatsink/fan, then quad core is gonna be fine, even if you overclock it to 3.5. I suggest a large heatsink if you have a decent sized tower, you'll be fine if you get one. The OEM heatsink, I don't suggest it.
