The CD does not work. I think it does not like Vista.

PS: I know a program can tell the temp. because in the BIOS I can get the temp.

Do you know of any other programs and just list them? I know it is possible it is just the programs I have tried don't like Vista or just are not compatible.

Not compatible with your proc and/or motherboard as I'm currently running vista.
71*C as idle temps are way to high to consider overclocking, your going to have to take a look at cooling and airflow inside of your case.
Try this program, whatever it says add 4*C, according to the differences on my CPU.

Downloaded it and says: "This is not an Intel Core Processor. This program will not continue." This is hopeless. I found one program called Hardware sensors monitor 4.3 that seems to work but I think it is a trial for like 15 days I think. I have a shot of it.

PS: That screen shot, from the BIOS, was taken right after I was running that PRIME95 program.

OK, I realized that I had 3 of my fans running at like 1/5 the speed they are working at now. They were plugged into the fan only sockets on my PSU. This was making the fans run at the lowest setting to keep the just the thermometer in the PSU cool. I hooked them all up to regular connections and now it is pumping in like 5 times more air!

I posted a while ago, but it seems like it never went through. Been having internet problems lately with my ISP (bad storm). Anywho, try this program.

I suggest trying SysTool which is free. I automatically detects your Mobo and everything, IF its in their database. Its good for overclocking. Also try ClockGen, which is also free. I am sorry if I'm repeating something I didn't have time to read the whole post.

Till you understand how to overclock in BIOS, I don't recommend anyone overclock. You need to be able to grasp the concept before you jump onto using programs.

As said before. the Core Temp does not work but I found a program that does work that is called "Hardware sensors monitor 4.3". Is Hardware sensors monitor ok for me to use?

The SysTool does not support my board, but thanks though Soorena.
