Default I5 750 with Hyper 212 Overclocking Help Please

Hi guys,

Looking for someone familiar with overclocking this particular setup...

Here's my total setup:

CM 690 II Advanced
I5 750
G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB
Corsair TX650
Hyper 212 using Actic Silver 5 (push pull configuration)
Asus p7p55d-e Motherboard

.... Anyways, i got the Hyper 212 with the intention of hopefully getting my cpu up around 3.8-4ghz... Just for the hell of it I decided to run Prime95 PRIOR to overclocking or adjusting any settings in the bios. After about 6 minutes Coretemp shows me about 59C on each core on average.

Does this seem high? Do I have overclocking room?

Also, I didn't see one.. but if anyone has an overclocking guide/tutorial for an asus 1156 board that would be great, if not.. If you happen to know how I should go about doing it please let me know. Thanks guys, really looking forward to using this new computer!

59c on prime is not too bad :)

keep pushing till you reach around 70, altough ppl around here say even 75 is not warm enough :)
around 90c i think itll throttle itself down.

58 is fair and right. We all have our temp. My I7 860 can get up to 88-89 at 4Ghz under Linx and it's fine because I know that a game or anything that is not stress test wont ever take it over around 75. You have to make a difference between use and stress test. if you get 59 in linx then a game will probably be around 50 so you are safe.

I thought I read that these chips shouldn't go over 70C though without damaging them though?

Maybe I read wrong... What would be safe temperatures?

it's really not a problem at 59C. I don't think 80+C under 100% load stress test is a problem either, see lots of people doing that when stress testing. Like mm said, you won't reach those temps on normal use.

You read wrong. Don't worry unless you start getting above 90. And don't listen to dangtx, since he has no idea what he's talking about.

Well If you read on Intel site they probably list like above 70 will damage your CPU but this is their said. In real life a CPU can last under much higher condition. In fact, the temp is not the issue, the power it need to reach these temp is. so OC this little baby like she want you to do!

Intel's site doesn't say that. They list a thermal spec which has nothing to do with safe limits, although people often mistake it for being that.

I don't really know I never use their site for that:P experience tell me when a CPU is to hotBut there is certainly a safe operating temp listed somewhere.
