I've over-clocked my i5-2500K to 4Ghz with 1.20v. idle temps while the CPU is down-clocked is around 42-48 on all four cores. While stressing with Prime95 on Blend, temps reach the 80s. Is this still safe or should I go back to stock? I know I should upgrade from the stock cooler but I really can't afford much right now. I have a old Xigmatek 1283 cooler with a thermaltake LGA775 bolt-thru kit and was wondering if that would be compatible?
