From what I've learned here is don't let it get over 60c

don't overvolt past 1.55 ... also I just heard that 65nm shouldn't be overvolted past 1.45. I did over volt mine past that though and didn't burn my chip.

Good cooling is a good thing~

45nm shouldn't be run over 1.45, 65nm is safe up to 1.6.

You shouldn't need to go any higher then 1.45V. 1.4V should be enough to get the max OC out of the CPU.

those temps are looking good, i see UNIXgod is suggesting 60*C, i have been using 55, the same as the X2s. i would say providing you doesnt go above 60 under extreme load and not above 55 during long periods of gaming your good to go

Well i had prime95 running for a few hours.

House mates put the heater on and slowly the temps started to rise.

I saw it hit 60 so i stopped the test.

Ive now got it running at 2.66ghz @ 1.28v.

Max load temps 42 degrees.

I am starting to get a little worried about power though lol.

I am using an antec true power trio 430w

System -

Phenom 9550 @ 2.66ghz
Zalman 9700LED
Gigabyte MA790X-DS4
4GB 800mhz ram @ 970Mhz
HD4850 @ stock.
320GB HDD

How much power would you estimate its using under full load?

That may be a bit lean on the wattage because I don't think Antecs give a lot of 12V amps. That's why I like Corsair, they give a lot to their 12V rail.

Occasionally in a game, i get a flicker across the screen.

It's kind of like a straight line from one side to the other that flickers a little then it will go away.

Is this a driver problem, or a power related problem?
