Pentium dual core E5400 Overclocking

Hello guys, I have a pentium e5400 2.70Ghz and i overclocked it to 3.0Ghz. i know its old and i am saving for a new but i cant wait to play some games on it.

using coretemp and intel burn test(for 1-2min), i am getting temperatures of about 70-73C.
Are these temperatures normal? I am using a stock cooler.

  1. I actually have the same cpu and started overclocking yesterday. Yeah, 70-73 is ok as long as you don't keep that temperature for like 5 hours straight. I'm planning on getting a cooler even though I plan on upgrading in the near future but you can use the cooler on the new cpu too, it will just keep your cpu alive for longer and you can overclock more, I've managed to overclock up to 3.78Ghz and stay completely stable but it causes your cpu to go up to 85 degrees at times. Definitely need a cpu cooler
  2. GuysWatch this video. This CPu is far one the bet to overclock watch my video and learn.
