Should... but I would try to feed it some more voltage, and see if that does the trick. Maybe the motherboard is holding you back...? :confused:

Flashing the BIOS wouldn't hurt it - sorry, no experience with that motherboard.

As for temps, I highly doubt it unless your CPU is starting to float up to 50* or higher... once you overclock, the CPU temp tolerance level starts to drop.
