The temps are very safe; I personally wouldn't want to be inside < 20c of tjmax for a stress test of a few hours.
Under any normal circumstances gaming etc.. you're not gonna hit temps higher than what prime95 would generate so you're good atm. If you're that worried about it just stay at 3.8, the difference even in synthetic benchmarks is very low; you have to figure going from 2.66-3.8 is over 1.1ghz OC already; 200mhz isn't that big of a difference in the whole picture.
I'm hoping if I decide to push the voltage to hit 4.0 I can stay below 70 after my reseat; I could have been at it already it's just a matter of deciding is 200mhz worth "atleast for me" .09-.1v increase, im stable at 1.31xxxx atm, and I know my chip would need on the order of 1.39xxx-1.4xxxv maybe higher for 4ghz.. it's really not a great tradeoff for the voltage/heat but I guess its cool just to say you hit 4ghz
I dropped 1k on this and that's the reason I'm so hesitant with voltage being that I can't afford to buy new parts 6 months down the road because I needed a virtually inperceptable 200 mhz lol.Edited by Trigunflame - 1/9/09 at 6:58pm
