My specs/temps are as follows:

Motherboard: Asus M5A88-M 29°Celsius
CPU: Athlon II X2 240 22°Celsius
Video Card(Idle): GTX 560 Ti 45°Celsius
Hard Drive: Agility 3 SSD 120GB 30°Celsius

I know its outdated, but it folds and games like a beast. I just got the new mobo and ssd and I would like to overclock until I have the money to upgrade the cpu. I had an OEM mobo that had no BIOS setting for overclocking.

Right now all clocks are stock, any suggestions on how high is safe?

Edit: I have 5 case fans, 2 front intakes, 1 back intake, 1 side exhaust, and 1 top exhaust. Any ideas for better config? I have heard of the benefits of positive air pressure and I am willing to try if anyone else can confirm. That would mean turning the side exhaust into an intake.

The shut down point for AMD processors I believe is 75C. This could've changed.

So as long as you're not close to that.

Thanks for the info. I idle around 22° Celsius and 40° Celsius at full load. Lots of wiggle room. Thats with the positive air pressure thing that I mentioned, it works great once I flipped my side fan to intake.
