Ok, I successfully unlock the 4 cores on my CPU and have begun to OC. Last night I slowly stepped up from the base 3.3 GHz to 3.5g GHz with no heat or stability issues. I'm using the AMD OverDrive Utility and did some research before starting but have a couple questions.

1.) In this link is a pic of the AOU page used (most of you have probably seen it). This is not a pic of mine because I'm at work. Down in the corner where it says Clock, I selected the "Select All Cores" box and all my core multipliers were already at 16.5 and my HT Multiplier was already at a max of 10. So the only way I could see to OC was to start moving my HT ref. Clock up in small increments. Was this the proper way to go about it? I don't understand why my multipliers were already at max. http://media.bestofmicro.com/9...0940%2016%20multi.jpg

2.) What is the PCIe Speed (MHz) and should I adjust this at all?

3.) I used a method I was told on here to keep track of my temps and under a full load with the Stability Test with AOU and then another one with Prime95, my core temps only reached around 60c max when I'm 35c at idle. How do these look?

4.) I'm actually unsure which of these is my socket temp, using HWMonitor, so I just picked the highest to be safe. Which one is my socket temp?

Sorry, forgot to mention, I'm using an ASUS M4A88T-M MOBO. Will get stats in sig soon.
