Idle temps are roughly 35*C and stayed at 68*C during an hour long linpack test.(Those temps are well within acceptable specs of the processor)

Primed it for 4.5 hours ran just fine figured thats good enough no? I usually dont stress my machine for that long of a period of time.

Given the current voltage and temps im going to shoot for 4.2 - 4.4ghz and up the ram a bit. I have to say for a midrange processor thats a lot of grunt for the buck. Will have some benchmarks up later on as id like to see a comparison vs the C2D and C2D quads.

I prefer a 24 hour prime to be sure. I had it happen that it dropped at the 18 hour mark.
