Ok I have been tweeking a little and running some tests at stock speed with OCCT and Orthos, and I am concerned on how my current setup can handel the heat.

Fistly the P4 650, I have read that a safe temprature to opperate this CPU is anywhere from 65C to 80C and a few say higher yet! I was wondering what will be safe and reliable in the long-run use(I dont want to kill my aging CPU) and not cause my CPU to down-clock itself.

And second what type of settings should I be using in OCCT and Orthos to test an OC setting?

Third I did a OCCT test for 25min, large data set, high priority at stock CPU speeds and it averaged 68C. These temps are far higher than I have ever got with my system with the highest load I can put on it myself. Should I be concerned if the test far exceeds temps that I preffer to be running at since it is a tourture test so to speek?

This is my fan setup:

CPU - http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?Idx=156

Intake - 120mm back, 80mm side.

Exhaust - 80mm PSU, 80mm Top.

68 isnt bad I wouldn't take it much above that... you gotta remember when you OC in the winter its not going to be as cool in your house during the summer so there is probably going to be a temp difference ~10F (~3c)

As for the OCCT setting I run it CPU heavy, I hardly run the ram test on it.

The problem is that I reached 68C when doing a base test with the stock processor speed 3.4ghz, so it seems that my current PC setup will not handel an OC very well. I think it would probably be wise to leave well enough alone unless you have other options I could try. Thanks.
