you all know my config. its in my signature. i oc'ed my proccy from 2.9 to 3.2 ghz. i have set fsb to 225mhz with a multiplier of 14.5x but i havent increased voltage. its 1.425 V (as easy tune 6 lists) i used bios setup for oc as et6 was giving me troubles. i dont have all those thermal paste and all. my cabby has a fan in front which sucks air and one at the back which releases air. is it ok? or should i revert back. temperature was 36 C. also i oced igp to 810mhz. is it ok? can i oc more without adding any extra stuff?

You should be real careful while overclocking if you are new to it. Try to overclock the rig bit by bit and not in jumps, be careful with overvolting. Overvolt only when the rig is not stable after fsb and multiplier increase. It takes patience do it cool and easy.

does thermal paste come pre-applied on the proccy? then it must be there. but i didnt apply anything over it. ok and what is the limit of safe temperature? i have a 250W psu which came prebundled with the branded zenith pc i bought 6 years ago. i will but vx450 when i will purchase a gfx card.

Please don't overclock if you have a poor PSU. You're risking your machine.

If you have not removed your cpu HSF an cleaned something - the TIMis still there.

You have bought a box packed cpu which comes with a HSF and thermal paste per-applied on the bottom side of the HSF not cpu ;-)

you have achieved nice OC even with that paltry PSU though as eveone is saying - get the new psu to ASAP !
