Again, it's not about temperatures, orndorf77. The goal is not to get the temperatures up, it's to test the stability of your entire system while the CPU is overclocked. The only way that temperatures play a role is they are simply to be watched so that they are kept at safe levels. No one who knows what they're doing tests for stability with the goal of getting the highest temps possible. No. Their goal is to see if their system is stable.
RealBench is not as demanding as Prime95 28.5 (again, NOT 28.3, IT'S 28.5). However, as Cyro999 taught you and me just now, your temps will be too high in Prime95 28.5. I know that the screenshot of the benchmark results shows 28.3, but 28.3 is now obsolete and 28.5 has taken its place - just as I linked for you. Here's the link again:
