How are my temps doing under full load?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been running Prime95 for the past 12 hours without any problems, and I think I've got a stable OC. I'm very glad to be able to do this on a mainstream Intel-branded board!

Now, I am using the stock 980x cooler at max fan speeds, and I was wondering how well it is holding up.

Temps are mostly ranging from 60 to 65 degrees Celsius, and never have reached 70 throughout the torture test. My Idle temps are usually between 35-40C or so. (Not the best for sure, but for a stock cooler I think it's holding up pretty well.)

Here is a picture of everything running at full load:



Yes, I do plan on getting a new motherboard and cooler sometime in the future, but what are your thoughts on my current setup?

I bet I could! The unlocked multiplier in this chip makes overclocking a breeze no matter what board you're on.

Would a corsair H70 get me to 4.5GHz?
