Hey I want to thank the members that helped me with my build. It's been working great and no faults yet. This is the first PC I've built :)

Samsung 23" LED Ultra Slim Screen

I was wondering what a good idle temp would be for the i5-750. At a 3.4 OC i'm running about 30-35c on idle, and after a quick 10 minute session of Prime95 it hit about 60c-ish range under 100% load.

Is this normal? Is it safe? haha I'm somewhat new to overclocking, so I'll turn it down if those are too high. Thanks.

And just for fun, the windows game test.

Any tips or suggestions with OC'ing are welcome. Or any other comments thanks.

    10 minutes isn't long enough to tell you if it's too hot. Run it for at least an hour. Generally, once you start hitting 75+ degrees it's running really hot. If it's running at 60ish after only 10 minutes, it's probably a little hot, but you can't be sure until you test it fully.
