A max temp of 75C seems a touch high in the P55 test.

Have you run intel burn test?

No not yet, I was running a vairety of prime 95 test for 2 hours and the highest it peaked was 75-76C, That's not very high from what i read on the forums. The max temp rating for this cpu is 100C.

I thought it seemed a bit high too, but 80C is where you don't want to be.

Warm but not too high for the stock cooler. You will need an aftermarket fan to overclock any higher than that. Have you tried lowering the cpu voltage? My i7 920 did 3.5 on 1.1v, so you might be able to maximize heat and power a bit more.

Ya I lowered the voltages a bit and it was still stable. I was at about 1.168V and it didn't crash.

Make sure your stable because you don't want to corrupt the data on your drives. What did it do to the heat output?

2 hours steady should be long enough for a stable oc right? The heat out put lowered by a bit, went from 76C to 73C Max. I lowered the voltages last night btw.

ok cool, 3c is 3c, keep lowering it until you have an error.
