    Well those cpus tend to run quite hot. Make sure your fan is on full speed and then check temps. If below 50C on load then consider overclocking.

    Also to Intel boards other than 975 and x38/x48 allow overclocking? I dont think they do.

    Man, fast and awesome replies!

    How do I make my fan to go on full speed and check CPU temp?

    PS: I forgot to mention that I have Windows Vista
