First off, I am a TOTAL n00b at OCing. tell me how it is:
I have an AMD Athlon II x4 640. (Default is 3GHz)
I have OC'd it to 3.3GHz. Just wondering if this will kill the cpu really fast or not. I would like the CPU to last one year min.
CPU FSB Frequency-220MHz
CPU Ratio -x15
CPU-NB Ratio -x10
CPU-NB Frequency-2200 MHz
Also, using a video stress test on Lost Coast, I get about 30C/86F on the CPU. Is this OK?
Thank you in advance!

If you can get an alarm that will let you know when the CPU is upwards of 100 degrees. Anything over 105 is very harmful. How far you can go with the OCing really depends on the temps. gl

If you're only getting 30 Celsius while doing a video stress test, then I would say that you could OC quite a lot further and still not have to worry. Make sure you have a very good cooler before you do anything risky. The stock coolers just won't cut it.
