Thanks for the reply! I was looking to overclock, but without touching the voltages. I didn't know if it would really be that great of an improvement, even if I went up to like 3.4-3.5ghz. Also, I have DDR2 800mhz memory. I planned for the future with my XFX nvidia 650i motherboard. I got this all so I could upgrade quite a bit in the future.
EDIT: I overclocked to about 3.2ghz and its going pretty well. I don't know how hot is too hot, but my CPU is averaging around 50C (it was averaging about 48C before I overclocked). I'm using Speedfan, and the nvidia utility that came with my motherboard, and they're are usually within 1 degree of each other. Is this too hot? I was thinking maybe I should adjust my fans because all my fans are exhaust. The heatsink fan is blowing out a vent on the side of my case, the back fan is blowing out, and the top is blowing out too. Should I set the back to blow in? I might reapply thermal paste, I don't think I did that great of a job to begin with.
