I5 + CM 212+ Temps high?

Ive recently built a new computer and been using the coolermaster 212+ with my i5 and ive been trying to overclock it.
I managed to get it to 3.0 with default voltage at about 60 max during intel burn test.. but once i try to go to 3.2 and bump the voltage a bit to make it stable my temps start going in the high 60s.

Should i try re-applying thermal? or are my temp ok?

  1. intel burn test is very extreme. i dont believe u will ever achieve that kind of stress in everyday use. try playing GTA IV or some other CPU-heavy game, or maybe run OCCT linpack test.
    AS 5 needs time to cure, i believe. anyway, those tests seem oko for intel burn-in...
  2. what im mostly worried about its the way it spike so fast up as soon as i increase voltage just by a bit... i do get in the 60s using prime95 at 3.2
