That isn't bad at all, you can usually goto around 1.2-1.23v with a decent air cooler and stay under 90C full load in programs like Prime95(these programs realyl stress the CPU harder than really anything else would) so you'd usually never see those temperatures. There are tricks like raising VIN to like 2.0v to help stabilize the OC as well as raising the ring voltage to 1.15v to 1.2v however raising the rin and raising the vin raises your CPU temperature very slightly, while vcore will raise it more. INtel also puts in vdroop this can be countered with LLC under 3dPower menu.

It is coming, I think i will post a rough draft on the forums maybe tonight or tomorrow, this time the OC guide might be a bit different as every person, site, and company has asked me to write one for this platform. It is a bit confusing for me about what I should do. However I will post one on these forums first b/c I consider this my home.
