Re: Questions about i7 950, Gigabyte UD5, & XMP profile
The max temps you want on your cores is 85c. I would personally try to stay around 70c. Are you using stock cooling? If you are i would look into buying a good cooler, True 120, V8, something alone those lines. The colder you run that processor the longer it will last.
A Quick answer to your question, don't do anything that get your cores above 85c. Run your mem at 1066 untill you get a better cooler.
