Hey,I oc my c2d 2.53 to 3.1 and in real temp it shows maximum tenmperature is 72 c with 100% cpu load. ..Is it too high?.
And if it passes prime 95 and occt is it stable.Or should i use some oter softwares.and by the way i have no extra fans except which came with the processor.
More abouttemperature much
you can always try to low your vcore from the bios and that may help lower your temps,and you can start thinking on an aftermarket cooler.
it would help if you gave more information. CPU, motherboard...abient temperature. Basically, yes, that's too high. you need an aftermarket cooler if you're going to overclock. Also...intelstresstest is a good program to test. But it will heat up more than prime95.
