Hey there. I'm new to overclocking--fact is I never originally intended to, but my old system blew up, and I replaced it, since money was low, with an Asus A7N8X-X mobo, ddr 400, and a Sempron 2400+, spec'd to run at 1667--I threw it together, and mis-set the frontside bus and ram timings (this is the first time I've built a "system"), letting it run overnight.
Funny thing is, I have virtually NO cooling at all. Just the stock heatsink and the fan in the power supply, yet running at 2GHz, I saw a mere 2 degree (celcius) increase. It rarely, if ever goes over 50 C. Is this a safe temp, or was it not safe to begin with?
The last thing I need is to hose my lifeline to the world (computer does everthing as my television/dvdplayer/tivo).
