Should I look at the cpu socket or core temps?

I have OCed my 8350 to 4.5ghz @1.41v
(is that a nice voltage for this cpu?)

My question is when I prime the cpu socket goes to 65C - 70C and core temps go to 45C - 50C according to AIDA64.

So which temperature reading should I be worried about? and whats the max temps for the cpu socket and cores?

Always look at core temps.

If you are OCing with the stock heatsink...don't.

A good budget cooler like a Xigmatek Gaia, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Pro or EVO will ba MUCH better.

Looking at your specs, I would say you were smart enough to buy a good cooler. Best to look at the Core temps.

Personally I try to look at everything as a whole, but Core temp is the important one.

you vaguely answered my question.
Just to point out I have a H100i mounted on the 8350!

So is 1.41v decent for an 8350 @4.5ghz
and what can max socket temp for my motherboard (M5a99FX PRO R2.0)

and what are the core temps for the 8350 (some people say 80C)

Thank you for the initial answers!

I would say your voltage is okay, but its hard to say without you doing stress test for stability. As far as socket temps... I want to say those seem right but I am looking further into it

This is saying your temps for the socket, using water cooler for CPU is normal.

As far as answering what the MAX temp is.... I can find nothing
