Those who wish to overclock their processors at such high degrees can do so if they wish.

However, they should not discount other's advice to yet other's regarding safer settings whilst overclocking.

In other words, if you wish to clock your processor and run it at 75C goldenfrag, then by all means do so but to discount the danger in doing so and to give advice that 75C is a realistic temperature value for that processor is not a good way to help others (IMHO).

Please read on electrostatic migration on an overclocked system. 75C is NOT as dangerous (but still IS not healthy) on a system that is not overclocked but a system that is being overclocked with higher voltages and clock rates it is very dangerous and needs to be dropped down in temperature, thus your advice (to someone that is raising clock rates and voltages) is dangerous and inaccurate.

In addition to what has already been said, it should be noted that IDLE temps mean very little. If a system idles at 55c but only hits 61c at full load (unlikely, but this is an example) than it's not that bad......similarly you may have a system that idles at 35c but will hit 75c on load.....

It's the load temps that should be paid attention to most and just because a chip can handle 72c, or 75c, doesn't mean it should spend a lot of time there, especially if there are means to lower it.
