these are my prime 95 load temps. high 40's in TAT and core temp as you can see.


However, my TAT load temps are in the low-mid 50's in TAT, and 58c in core temp, while being maybe 42-43c in speedfan.

I'd like to push my OC more, but what do you guys think?

edit: my speedfan temps are: 1 is mobo, temp 2 is cpu, temp 3 is bogus

I would err on the side of caution and use TAT as the deciding factor. Besides, TAT is from the core(s).

It's a little high. I would try to keep it all below 50C, and below 55C for sure just to be on the safe side (Full load on both cores - P95 x2). Even at 50C there is some headroom for temp spikes.

Consider how long you want to use this CPU. If the answer is around 12-24 months I think you are oaky, as the lifespan will be shortened. As to how much shorter, I can not say with any real experience.
