Is it safe to go over 95wTDP intel burn test?

I have overclocked a 2500k which is 8 hours prime95 stable in small ffts.

I was looking to widen testing with 20 or so runs of intel burn test and some blend on prime also.

When i started the intel burn test within seconds i noticed that my TDP had shot up to well over 100W TDP and shut it off immediately. Is this normal?

Prime95 stays within 95W range, usually within the 80s.

  1. It's not an issue, intel burn test is more intensive like prime's large ffts. Watts=volts x amps, so it is normal to use more power when overclocking.
  2. OK cool, thanks very much. It's bout 120W max.
