yeah, i have my own type of cooling system, not sitting it on my lap or a desk or anything im not sure if the 115C is correct (going by CoreTemp) but alot of people with my APU(CPU) have been able to OC to 2.5ghz im not silly enough to go that far when i dont need to

Type your cpu into google. it should then pull up a list, one of those should be one titled ARK open that and it should show all the specs of the cpu including it`s maximum temprature.

It will look like this.

ARK | Intel® Core?2 Duo Processor E8400 (6M Cache, 3.00 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB)

Thanks for the help guys, I downloaded HW Monitor and everything seemed fine. I ran a torture test with prime95 and got about 55 degrees under full load and about 20-25 degrees idle. The core clock speeds now are all the same, around 4400mhz.

This is a nice site for CPU specs too. Type in the CPU in one of the 3 search boxes in the upper right.
It often has more info than the AMD or Intel pages do.

Safetly Remove Hardware Help Please!
When I click(left and right) the safely remove hardware icon, nothing pops up (the list of hardware to remove doesnt show up). I just click it and nothing happens. When I go to "Devices and Printers", it just hangs up and loads forever.
