what temps should this cpu stay at?
http://gyazo.com/8556a1a5dc8a1bec6c0aaff6fc724ec9 hitting 94 C under full load for a few min. all the cpu specs are in the screenshot. in bios i set it to the 10% OC preset, now its 3.0 ghz, i want to hit 3.2, hopefuly that will make youtube videos not lag...
thanks.

EDIT: stock volts

Wow, 94C = Bad I'm guessing you're using stock cooling? Also, preset overclocking can be bad on processors as a lot of older boards actually automatically increase voltages on processors which in turn add to the heat they produce. While adding voltage can increase stability at higher clocks; the addition of heat can be exponential. I'm going to suggest you do some research and learn about your motherboard and overclocking with it and the processor that's in it. This can save you a lot of problems. Temperatures like that are dangerous and the way it looks to me, at 94C that processor is throttling itself to save itself from burning up.

yeah... that makes since. i just set it to auto 10% oc because it was geting pinned at 100% and laging on youtube videos :/  would underclocking help it not hit the limiter and actually make it faster?

this was my first build, 6 years ago and only has to last a few more weeks until i can get a new mobo, i3 and gtx 660.
