Die-hard Overclocking & Case Modifications Want to overclock that processor, videocard or even mainboard ? Wanna tweak the best out of your piece of hardware or have the means to design a killer case ? Get in here and pimp that rig man.
Ok so i installed my Hyper 212 Evo today for my intel i5 2500k and i overclocked it to 4GHz currently i am running a prime95 test and it says my
Core0 Max Temp = 65c
Core1 Max Temp = 71c
Core2 Max Temp = 68c
Core3 Max Temp = 65c
I've been running Prime95 for about 2 hours and 20 minutes and its been stressing my 4GHz Overclocked CPU.
Are these temps acceptable?

Yeah, those temps are fine but you might want to start reducing the voltage bit by bit until it becomes unstable. Like IcE said, the temps are just *slightly* high but that could be ambient, case airflow, etc. as well. They are well within acceptable limits but more like the temps for a 4.4 ghz oc with that cooler.
