I see thanks for your advice! One last thing to ask is
1. What is the safe or max temp?
2. What is the safe or max voltage?

IMHO I think <80C and 1.4-1.5v but that is just me. I have run all kinds of volts though my 2600K but I am SURE that others will tell you = or <1.4v.

Voltage is fine for me. I'm just worrying about the temp as I got a bad ambient temp.
Anyways thanks for your advice!

I have the 2600K with a P8P67 Deluxe and I am getting around the same temps with a 4.4 overclock. Looks good to me.

I get load temps (Prime95) of a max of 60C with a 4.5GHz overclock on my 2600k.
I am using the Corsair H100 though with 2xGT AP-15's on low.

I'm using the offset setting of +0.010, so not sure what the load VCore is to be honest, guess next time I stress test I'll check what the load VCore is according to CPU-Z.

Got around to checking, seems to be at 1.264V on load, this isn't while running prime, but it's at an 85% load at 4.5GHz.

72.6 is tjmax not core there's a fair size delta between those eh like most of the times almost 10c.

Why do you think thermal trip doesn't kick in till well after that
