I have the same processor and am using the stock cooler as well. Because this is a new build for me, I haven't done anything excessive yet and the stock cooler is OK. From what I've read, you want the max temp below 160deg F or about 72deg C. You have exceeded that max so my guess is that when you OC the chip the stock cooler will not be able to handle the heat and your system will become unstable when pushed.
I just read a review on a Cooler Master cooler that was relatively inexpensive and did a great job. Go for a cooler.

Those temps look good to me.

Maybe you are confusing the TJ Distance with the temps?

I'd recommend tossing out your stock cooler. The stock cooler that came with my i7 was terrible. The MB would shut itself down due to overheating, without me even overclocking it o,o.

I'm actually impressed by this hsf since my previous cpu was a athlon 64 x2 6000+ that had a bigger stock hsf, but ran at twice the idle temps, similar load temps though

Believe me when I say this. Get an after market cooler and don't oveclock it with that stock cooler in place. I had the same issue til I got my Megahalems push/pull set up. I know the i5 can take some abuse but don't over do it til you get another cooler. Just my .02 cents.

Luckly, I haven't overclocked mine yet, I just got bored last night and ran 10 minutes of OCCT and was shocked by the temperatures of the i5. My idle temps are really really low, while my load temps are really really high lol, I definitely need an aftermarket hsf. What are some good hsf that have a good performance/price ratio?

Here's what I have, a great value:

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7 compatible RR-B10-212P-G1 120mm "heatpipe direct contact" Long life sleeve CPU Cooler

Keeps my i5 at just under 30c at idle, and 47c max through 6 hours of Prime 95

Here are some good articles for you:

Good luck, i5 is a great overclocker, but a simple baseclock change to 160 with turbo will give great overclock with the advantage of good power consumption. A Guy

P.S. Make sure your case is wide enough for this. 8" should do it, unless you have a side fan. What case are you using?

920 core temps, am I safe?
OC'd from 2.67 to 4.61, ran all the stress tests, FLAWLESS. One thing that concerns me is the temperature of the cores under load. Idle = 45 °C on all 4. Load = 75 °C on all 4. Steady, no changes. BTW, never a crash (program, windows), weirdness, or any anomalies. Thoughts?
