3570k @4.6 temps on air.

Hello all. I just finished OCing my 3570k and wanted to check something with you guys. My temps under full load using prime95 hit 93c on one of the cores. The other were a spread of 84-92c. My voltage s around 1.29. Now, considering this is on air (hyper 212+ with a push/pull config) are those temps bad? I am assuming I'll never actually see those temps with what I use my computer for (gaming, web browsing, etc.) but I just want to make sure with the community here. Thanks in advance for your responses.

More about 3570k temps
  1. I have the same OC and I max out at around 80C with other cores being 75C or so. I'm using the hyper 212 evo. I've been told I have a jackpot i5-3570k however, as I am completely stable at 4.6GHz with only 1.160v.
  2. Temps are realistic with that cooler and that voltage. Anyway, temperatures are too high and I wouldn't consider it safe.

    Voltage seems a bit too high for 4.6GHz. You sure it wasn't any stable if with lower voltage?
  3. Those temps aren't dangerous if they were the cpu would shut down. The comparable laptop cpus run at those temps 24 7 at full load no problem but I wouldn't run it that high. Go play a game and report back with the temps in that.
  4. I have 3570k @ 4.5 Ghz, hyper 212 evo with push/pull (Corsair SP120s), with voltage at 1.136.

    Max temps I see after 8 hours of p95 is 68C, and it's usually below that.
  5. damn dudes you got realy nice chips there...mine 4.5 Ghz needs like 1.28v or so...

    Why are you holding back? 68C leaves you with plenty of headroom. You can probably get an easy 4.7GHz.
