CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Window 7 Enterprise

Idle reading are.......

After 1/2 hour of Prime 95...

Prime is designed to push the processors to the max, thus exposing any issues or temps.

Personally I would never OC any system on stock cooling, I OC my quad core gamer quite a bit but run a Tuniq tower cooler on it which is HUGE, had to adjust my case just to fit it in. eew

Prime does push it that to the MAZ (MAX) ha ha. But with my OC from 2.66 to 3.0 I did not notice more then 3C degree of Temp change when gaming. So I though what will I find when I run Prime with it OC'd. Not much difference there either.
This is the 1st processor that I have EVER OC'd. Being in IT I have seen some BAD things happen because of it. The Quad seems to have handled it with Prime. (Keeping in mind my gaming never pushes it that far.) YET

Thanks for the input Bro! wtg
