Hello all, while I am well aware that there are many such threads asking about 2500k overclocking temperatures, I just want to make extra certain that everything is 100% before I give the new compy I've built to my brother, who isn't quite a tech savvy as myself.

So, here are the temperatures I'm getting running Prime95 all out.

2500k OCed to 4.2Ghz - CPUID Hardware Monitor Temps:

Core #0 - 47C - High of 49C
Core #1 - 51C - High of 55C
Core #2 - 50C - High of 53C
Core #3 - 52C - High of 55C
Package - 54C - High of 57C

From what I've read, these are acceptable temperatures, however any input about these temperatures from you guys will be MUCH appreciated! :wahoo: 

The Full Specs:

CPU: 2500k @ 4.2Ghz w/ CM212+
Mobo: AsRock Extreme3 Gen3
RAM: 4GB G.Skill 1600Mhz RAM
Video Card: EVGA Nvidia Geforce 560ti

Well within reason. How long did you run P95?

Thanks for the reply!

Probably 30 minutes or so; I know that many people like to leave it running for 24 hours or so, but I don't have the time at the moment. It seemed that the temperatures didn't climb at all over the elapsed time, so should I run it for a SUPER long time to see for sure if temperatures will climb? Because it appears to be very stable.

EDIT: I just did another stress test for 1 hour, and the temps stayed constant and the same as posted before. :)
