    Hey Sammy, could you post your full system specs (in your user section)? This will make it much easier to help you.

    Welocme to PureOC!

    3.2Ghz is a can of corn. Go to Bios.... Adjust multi to 21 X. Raise BClock to 153... Disable Turbo. You should be able to easily get 3.2Ghz. Stock voltage should be fine. If not raise it a click or 2 on CPU.

    Yes, I believe it depends on either which motherboard or i7 920 CPU you have for the Multiplier to hit 21. Whatever, does not matter. Keep your Multiplier at 20, and your BCLK around 160. You could also if you wanted to, change your voltage to around 1.25-1.26. Voltages will not be even numbers.

    You sit at 52C idle? That's a bit high. I'm sitting at 46C and I have a 3.20GHz OC too. The voltage should be OK. Maybe Skyguy, Deton, Bully or Doctor Death can stop by and help

    He most likely has stock cooling. It's not the overclock neccesarily, it is what voltage. Temps will hit 52 as a high with backgound activity. He should be fine.

    You have H50????? That is quite warm for idle.....

    Yes man, I have been aware of that for a year now xD. It's the crappy airflow in my case I swear. I have done everything I can but it still sits warm.

    Assuming those are not LOAD temps, 52c is seriously a big number in terms of idle temps.

    I really would suggets you to pick up an aftermarket cooler, I would highly recommend the Hyper212+ with some 90CFM fans from coolermaster ( the stock is loud and not that great ) though be sure to go light on the TIM the HDT requires some patience
