Hi, Alright so i OC'ed my i5 2400 to 3.50ghz and ran prime95 for an hour (I know thats not long) max temp for package was 69 Celcius. My main question is, Is that a safe temp and is there room to go to maybe 3.60 or 3.70ghz?
The way i got the OC was changing multiplier to 35x and disabling the turbo boost and any power saving/lowering things.
That's much better than the stock cooler AFAIK, so temps like that seem oddly high even for stress testing. Still I wouldn't be worried about those temps.
There is room for a little more overclocking, but not much more. That's not even because of the temps, but simply because the i5-2400 doesn't have much room for overclocking because of its mostly locked multiplier.
