So first off just like to say I love this site and all the help the forums have brought me in my PC endeavors. That being said I turn to you guys with an issue. I have a i7 2600k with a noctua d14 heatsink. The build runs great and idles at around 30C. Yesterday, I decided to start oc and ran prime 95 to get a base line on my system. To my surprise my processor shot up to like 75-85C and my heatsink remained cool to the touch even after half an hour. Is this normal? I know prime 95 really heats up a system but what temps are unsafe and should my heatsink remain completely cool like that? Thanks!
