I've heard between 80-85C. As long as its not at that temp all the time it'll be fine

85c is optimal max as in its ok to run it that high. 100-105c is tjmax, processor will start to run slower then. Personally for OCing you should keep it under 80c.

Hi: I'm just wondering if anyone knows how are my temps and voltages looking so far(4.0zghz OC)? How much more do you think I can get out of it still being stable? I have a liquid cooler for the CPU and the rest are stock fans on my Tempest Evo case. BTW why do you think my 2 fans are showing 0 rpm? I just got this computer perbuilt, could they be unplugged? I looked in the case and it looked good but honestly I am a beginner.
