I'm currently trying to overclock my Intel Q9450 (stock 2.66 GHz) to 3.0 GHz, wondering if these numbers look ok:


CPU:
FSB: 375 Mhz
Multiplier: 8x
Final Clock: 3000 MHz
Voltage: 1.3V

Idle Temp: 46~50 C
Load Temp: 55-65 C
HSF: Zalman CNPS 9700

Motherboard (Asus Maximus Formula):
Northbridge: 1.35V
Temp: 52 C

RAM (OCZ Platinum DDR2 800Mhz PC6400 Revision 2):
Timings: 4-4-4-15 CL2 T2
Frequency: 901 MHz

Idle/Load Temp: Unknown
Cooling: Heatspreader + OCZ XTC RAM Cooler with 2x 60mm Fans



Chasis:

Antec P180B with 4x 120mm Fan (2 intake, 2 exhaust) in upper chamber, 1x 120mm fan in lower chamber.

PSU: Antec TPQ 850W Modular



Any opinions on these numbers? especially the temperature and voltages. I have some experience overclocking my E6600, but I don't know the stock voltages on the NB, or what the normal operating temps for the Q9450 is. TIA
