Been running this Celly d 315 at 3.4 GHz 800 FSB as opposed to 2.26 533 as is stock. Things have been fine, or so I thought... but generally load temps get in the 60-62 C range quite often, and I was wondering if that is hot enough to activate throttling.

Should be fine. Try lowering your voltage a bit, your temps will drop.

I think thermal throttling kicks in around 70 degrees or so. Temps are ok at 60-62, although you might consider improving case ventilation a little.

Used a program called ThrottleWatch. Indicated no throttling at constant 60C for half an hour. So I think I'm good with tha. Still considering better cooling though ;) Just because dust builds up, fans slow down, and cooler is better even if the only reason is because it is cool to have things cool. Thank you all *bows*
