I believe the TJ Max is 100c for your CPU. You reached a max temp of 57. I'd think getting over 70c would start to be a concern. If it approached that with an OC, you'd be looking for a better cooling solution if you regularly pushed it. A Guy

You mean like the 79C I hit after an hour of Prime95 at these settings?

Apparently my new ASUS board will automatically adjust your core voltage for you - not always in a conservative way, either. If I can figure out how to limit that to something a little less scary I might try for 5GHz.

Believe me that others will say 80c or even higher. I just wouldn't want to see those temps on anything but a torture test run. I think a high of 79c on such a test, when you will likely never approach it in normal use, wouldn't be such a concern. A Guy

Yeah, that didn't freak me out nearly as much as the voltage. Most people I've talked to say that anything much above 1.35 for everyday use is pushing your luck.

nice achievement profdlp, i guess you'll still have adequate headroom to decrease vcore.

Here's my 2500K at 5 Ghz I did some weeks ago, unfortunately I had to stop at 3rd loop of IBT since temp core #2 reached 81C with Corsair H60.

Impressive, peaceful!

I am going to have to keep trying different combinations. I've decided that if I can get a 50% overclock (5.1GHz) I'll declare victory - and hopefully regain my senses.

They seem a bit warm but not dangerous. From what I find your max Tcase temp is 74.1C and your max temp would be just a bit higher. I think you can give an overclock and keep an eye on temps.

EDIT: From Bill's info you are just fine at stock speed with those temps. I'm a wildman and I'd no be too concerned unless your temps would get to 75C. Like he said that is a stress test and normal use will be a lot cooler.
