Default These Temps OK?

Been a while since i overclocked anything. This was pretty easy to do..



I am using an Xigmatek HDT-S1283 with a bolt kit and AC MX-2 paste (Pretty sure i put tiny bit to much on)

The temps seem a little high from what i have read all over (google). Keeping in mind its one of the hottest weeks ever here in Victoria B.C. Just wanted to get some opinions.

Thanks

That E8400 should easily do 4.0GHz, your temps are fine just keep things at or below 60oC. Also update CPU-Z to 1.52.

sorry but why does everyone say 60c or below i mean i have not had a chip under 60c at full load in oh like 7 or more years. the e8400 has a max ihs of 72.4 which is not the core max.

Under full load that is a perfectly normal temperature... 60C is the temperature a lot of people are comfortable with... which means you've got quite a few degrees left to play with! :)

Thanks guys. I have seen more then a few people claim under 40C at load so i was a little worried. I might go to 4GHz but its not really necessary so i might keep it like this and try to enable EIST.

Keep distance to TJMax >20 and happy OC-ing.
Peoples are too worried by temps nowadays.
