H60 temps a little high at stock clocks on 2500k?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got a second generation H60 on a 2500k and at stock clocks of 3.4ghz I am getting idle temps around 27-34C and under load using prime95 for a hour or so around 54-59C.
I have never used one of these before and I want to overclock my 2500k to hopefully 4.0ghz or more while keeping temps under 70c.
My case has good airflow so this is not the problem.

idle is fine as ambient temps will change that, but as long as its not idling at like 35-40, you are gravy.
also, you could get to 4ghz and your temps would prob barely change under load...heck even 4.2 and you wouldnt notice too drastic of a change if you kept your voltage low.

if you are really that worried, try reapplying your thermal paste or lowering ambient temps.

Yea you are right I just tested it for a few hours and it can easily handle 4ghz without much of a temperature change I am sure it can go well beyond this.
