Windows 7: Turbo mode?

08 Aug 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have Intel Celeron E3400 Dual Core 2.6GHz. My motherboard ASUS P5G41T-M LX3 has a turbo key mode and I have no clue how to use it. But the problem is here: I went to stress test my CPU (at default clocks) and after 1 hour the temperature increased to 78C and I stopped the stress test and I was wondering how it could work when boosted (overclocked with the boost key) because if the temperature is 78C when not boosted, boosting would melt my CPU.
If I'm wrong correct me.

P.S. Sorry for probably bad english
