Windows 7: underclocking and undervolting?

IMO, no CPU should overheat under a clean system. As long as your CPU doesn't reach 15 degrees Celsius or less below its Thermal Design Power, your CPU should be fine. If you are overheating at stock speeds, you may need to replace the thermal paste and clean your fan and heatsinks.

Personally, I think you may have other problems than Summer. I live in Florida and it gets pretty darn hot here. Yes, I'm overclocked and yes my temps go up, but not nearly that much. Of course in my opinion, what AMD and Intel send as stock coolers are not worth using. They will not cool anything. Get another cooler. Any aftermarket cooler would be better than the stock one. But if you have high temps and want to overclock, get the best you can afford.

Consider water cooling as it will let you overclock more
