Is 90C normal when running Prime95?

I was stress testing my 2700x overclock with Prime95 and the temp maxed out at 90C exactly. Is that a normal temp or is that a bit high?

Specs:
2700x OCd to 4.25 @ 1.45v
Corsair H150i pro cooler
16gb ddr4 ram

  1. I'd say for 1.45v it's quite normal.
  2. That's about the same numbers I get with Kraken X62.
  3. What version of P95?

    Version 29.4 build 8.
    Seems like ~90C is normal though.

    It's too hot though. It will throttle at 90C. I just run stock fort he higher single-core boost.

    Yeah I know it's high but it doesn't get anywhere close to that when playing games. With GTA V it maxes at 50C with the overclock.
  7. Newer versions of P95 use AVX instructions, which cause the CPU to heat up much more. Try P95 v26.6.
  8. Was that the small FFT test?
