George Jetson overclock

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok I haven't been here in about 2 years... Now i've upgraded my E7400 to a 2500k. Bought the microcenter bundle - cpu,Giga p67 board, & 4gb ram for $310.

This is basically a cheap / lazy overclock. I just clicked a button on the "smart 6" software that gave me about 4.1ghz. (hence the George Jetson overclock) Prime 95 peak temps were at 79 degrees.

So... is this temp ok? Do I need to back it off a little? Should I just spend some extra and get a good fan?

those temps are too high.. i think 72c is intel's limit, ideally you want to load mid 60's at most

Backed it off to 3.7 (isn't that what its default turbo is) and temps are still peaking at 79 degrees.

this is a intel stock fan.
