I have seen a lot of posts at different sites telling someone, that is just starting to OC, that 90-100C is ok, I think it's appropiate to mention the risk and possible damage that can occur at these high clocks and temps and tell them "OC at your own risk'.
There are a few members at these other forums that do mention these things, but don't see it enough.

Glad to hear that your CPU temps are down.
I understand and things happen, my reply should have been different as well...

I do appreciate your advice in regards to OC-ing, even if it is not for me. The default settings work just fine and the system is plenty fast as it is. The system is running at its default settings and I am still amazed at the load speed for the Photoshop CS5; on previous system with conventional hard drives, it used to take close to a minute to start up.

Thanks again...

That's far better than average, Nice scores.
Just to clarify what I meant - If the spinning hard drive is the lowest score I would consider that above average.

No worries, no harm, no foul.

A small OC is usually enough to see an improvement, and you do learn a lot about your system when you delve into the OC realm

Funny. My 945 only gets a 7.3. What are you running it at?

Ok..thanks. Mines only @ 3.3. Also, you should think about getting an SSD. You'd love it and your rig would be vastly better (not that it's bad now)
