Make sure it doesn't.

It hit 73c for a brief moment while I was stress testing and then I shut off the stress test. Currently at 4.7ghz with no problems. Is there a way I can cool the CPU socket even more? I placed a small 80mm fan thats only 15mm thick on the back side of the motherboard, mounted on the case to blow some air and to circulate airflow back there.

I think guys are worried too much about overheating things.
For example, some guys want two pumps, in case one fails because they think if a pump fails, they will have the whole loop overheating and ruining the components.

In reality, a lot of fail safes are built into your parts. If your CPU overheats for example, it throtles itself down before it gets too hot. And if that's not enought, the whole system shuts down. That goes to protect core temps.
Now for socket temp, I don't know the safety measures for it. But I can pretty much garanty you there are safety measures to save your socket from getting too hot, like every other part of your puter
Now, how much.you want to rely on those safety mechanisms, that's a different story.
But they exist, and they work.

Edit: I think some air flow on the front of your socket, and around your block, would help more than on the back off the board.

Of course p/p will yield better results. I never claimed otherwise. But the benefits of p/p are more noticeable on thick rads, with high fpi at faster speeds.
Sure p/p will get him better temps, just not as much as one would expect on a thicker rad. P/p should increade a rad's performance between 15 and 30%. But on a slim rad, it's likely to be closer to 15% than 30%. That's all I was saying.

And why do you think adding a rad warrants a new pump?
Rads are notorious for having very low restriction. So if his loop is working now with the 750, an other rad will make very little difference on the total loop restriction.

I generally recommend not relying on fail-safes, but know which ones you have. Try to keep your socket temps down, if you can't through some exigent circumstances, fine, but know if your motherboard has a thermal cut off for the socket overheating - if it doesn't, I'd likely either back off the OC or....

If I'm really pushing to get max clocks out of an OC, I'll usually pick up a 40 or 50mm fan, and mount it to the VRM heatsink by the rear I/O panel, blowing air away from the back of the case, towards the socket. Cools the VRM (I had a socket 1366 EVGA board it took 9C off the VRM temps) and drops the socket temp a few degrees too. Just make sure the fan is aimed downward at the circuit board around the socket, not parallel to the board over the socket.

My radiator is not all that thick. It's actually a fairly regular sized radiator. So I'm told push/pull isn't really necessary for me. I hear if anything, I'll get 1-2c better from P/P. Currently the top mounted radiator fans are pulling air into the case from the outside.

I really wanted to get to 4.8, I'm sure I can get there but it will get really hot while stress testing. But I'll settle at 4.7ghz.
