    Chuck, you don't have to run Prime95. You can run something that puts enough strain on the CPU to kick it into turbo. A lot of programs will do that and not generate as much heat and strain on the components.

    A lot of times, just an AV scan will do it. Less strain, heat and voltage won't go as high.

    Okay, I'm at 4.899MHz and my temps are looking really good.

    I'm using a different program to check my temps, I've heard this one is more reliable.

    Went ahead and validated it since my temps are so good.

    I wonder if I could go any higher?

    Well, I was able to make it higher.

    Attachment 47001

    But I'm afraid I've ran out of volts. I read somewhere that the max voltage for my CPU is 1.55 I think, and when I was trying for 5.199MHz, I would have had to go over the max to get it. Otherwise I was just getting BSODs. I had the voltage all the way up to 1.524 to get to 4.999MHz.

    Does your BIOS have an 'Easy' section and an 'Adavanced" section? If so, you need to be in the advanced section with it set to Manual probably.
