I have a core i5 2500k overclocked to 4.5 GHz on 1.32Volts. Using a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ single fan PUSH with Tuniq x-4 thermal paste (small pea in middle appliciation)
After running Prime95 for an hour my highest recorded Core Temp was 72C (ambient room temp about 20C)
Is this cause for concern? I reseated the heatsink and it did not improve temps. I have been solely an AMD guy for the past 5 years so anything above 55C makes me real nervous and frustrated. How would you rate this load temp under this type of air cooling? Thanks
Alot of poeple are getting these same temps in the 60-70s C on air cool. Mine is also @ 1.325 volts @ 4.4-4.5. As long as it doesn't hit 80 it should be fine. The TJmax on it is high.
