Intel Core2Duo E4500 2.2ghz high temperatures!

My processor is running at high temperatures. Using Coretemp, it shows around 40c idling and about 62-63c during 100% load. I am using stock cooling here. On overclocking to 2.42ghz (220x11) , the temperatures start reaching 70c. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.

  1. Time to switch coolers, Hyper212+, will give you plenty of cooling and lots to play with for < £20.

    how old is the PC, a simple addition of some new thermal paste, (after removing old paste) could help significantly.

    Yeah, it's quite old. About 3-4 years. I will try and report back. Thanks.
