Hi guys, overclocked my i5 2500k to 4.7 ghz, Vcore 1.3V. Load temps on prime 95 are up to 73deg, idle temps are high 30s to low 40s. Is this a safe range? Thanks

For a long-term Sandy Bridge overclock:
1. Keep the peak Prime95 core temps below 75ºC (you should leave it running at least an hour to get stable temps)
2. Keep the CPU voltage below 1.4v
