Hi!

I suppose you are using the standard heatsink that comes with the processor? If yes, then an Alpha will bring down your temperatures, but what temps are you reading now? (In celsius if possible, thanks!)

The lower the temps, the higher your CPU will overclock! :)

Wow, that is very hot! Getting an Alpha should lower your temps quite much, so get it as soon as possible! :)
