3570k OC too hot?

Hello guys,

I'm quite new to overclocking and I've had my i5-3570k for quite a while running with stock cooler.
mobo is Asus P8Z77-V LX

So currently I'm running at roughly 4.1Ghz with core temps hovering around 105C when heating is on (albeit I need to dust off the fans again soon prob) when I run the tests at night when room temp is roughly 5 degrees lower it'll be able to average 4.2.

My question is with 105C being the max temperature should I lower the OC a bit? Pic related

You should get an aftermarket cooler. I'm surprised you got that far with the stock cooler. Overclocking with the stock cooler is like trying to drive on 4 donuts, they work.... but for how long?

Those are extremely high temperatures, does you computer not shut off? What are you using to check the temperature and what are you using to stress test? Also what kind of cooler do you have?

That's too high.

So what temp should I be aiming for with this CPU (it won't go over 105C so I should still be safe was my thought)

for 24/7 operation anything over 75C shouldn't happen. 105C is way high and will start to thermal limit itself.

Prime 95 to stress, stock cooler and I'm using the OC feature of my mobo (oc by temp) which basically drops the oc at 105 to prevent breaking that limit

Wow, ...but the fun won't last for long. I'd put it back to stock clock immediately.
For ~$30 bucks at least get a CM Hyper 212.
But even a step up from that; say a good closed loop liquid solution you still can't get the heat away from an Ivy/Haswell CPU. Intel used a cheap thermal paste under the IHS instead of solder. You can "fix it" thou; if you have the "guts" to cut the IHS off:

Do NOT attempt to overclock with the stock cooler! All you're doing is risking damage to your CPU. I suggest you get an aftermarket cooler, that way you can have much lower temperatures, less noise and some nice overclocks ;)  ! Make sure to keep your CPU under 90c to ensure nothing bad happens.

So I should put my max multiplier at roughly 37?

Ya, get an better cooler and "feel it out".
