Try Everest.

Use to be aida32. Still freeware. Has a nice feature for seeing how far you have overclocked along with temps in the sensor section.

I'd also recommend Motherboard Monitor if it works with your setup. Used to give me the most accurate temps on my old desktop at home.

42 on the cpu is ok. figuer it goes up 5 deg C under heavy loading (like cpu benchmark or gaming). Thatputs you at 47 max so you have another 5 degrees to over clock it. Keep it under 55 max.

I run sisoft sandra (its freeware) burn in for the cpu after I up the clock speed and monitor the temps. It takes about 5 passes of the burn in module to stabilize.

If all goes well in burn in I start playing my favorite games. Nothing like gaming to stress and overclcoked system.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
