I don't feel comfortable answering your primary question, so I will defer on that to someone more knowledgeable. However, although not super-knowledgeable on overclocking, I am a master at building computer systems. The Chieftec power supply you are using is the biggest piece of junk among all PS builders. I learned that the hard way, when when a Chieftec unit blew up and took out my motherboard, video card, and sound card with it. You have some very nice hardware in that computer of yours. It is a shame to power it with a piece of junk. Go get you a good Corsair or PC Power & Cooling power supply. The power supply is the most critical unit in your computer, believe it or not, for good stability and longevity. Good luck.

58C is fine bud, worry when you hit 70C
