wow .. that's great !!! i'm no longer patient to see your 5,1 Ghz SS.

Yep. I backed off to the previous OC level and am sitting at 42C after a game of AOEII. Not the most CPU-intensive program out there, but not "idle", either.

I can't get mine fully stable above 4GHz. Had it as high as 4.25GHz but it would blue screen every now and then. Just didn't get the best chip I guess but I'm very happy with it and my Phanteks (and all my case fans) keeps everything nice and cool

Mark your CPU core volts are pretty high, you could try a NB volts bump to see if the would help. If it is possible keep the HT link around 2000MHz.

I've got the CPU voltage as low as I can. Any lower it won't boot (the NB is pretty high as well) I think I just got unlucky with this chip and I'm waiting for Pile Driver chips before I upgrade

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.
Intel® Core™ i7-2600K Processor

Your Tcase max temp is 72.6°C. add 5°C for core temps, your max core temp is 77.6°C.

You will see many OC sites going way over this, so it is a conservative number from Intel.
Have read where Intel can get info from the CPU for the max temp it has been ran at, if the warranty is ever needed.
Evidently they don't use that to void the warranty, according to some posts.

Motherboard auto voltage is notorious for over-volting.
You should always manually adjust your CPU voltage when OC'ing.
Back it down until it won't pass Prime95 or IBT.
1.584v is very high, you should be able to get around peaceful's 1.368v, or lower

I don't plan to oc it much. ATM I'm at 3.0GHz, just 300MHz oc.
And thanks for the answer. Maybe I'll buy new cooler if I plan to oc it.

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.
Yes, I know that they are not dangerous. Anyway, thanks to you also for answering.

That's a nice OC and great temps for the 960.
