I have no idea what I'm doing here. OC questions.

Not safe. I'm surprised your PC hasn't shut off by now. Back it down.

You may still be able to overclock by getting something like a Hyper 212 Evo Cooler and sticking it on there. The stock coolers don't handle overclocking well. Also get some nice thermal paste, that helps too.

Ordered that fan, budget doesn't really allow for anything else.
Meanwhile, I'll downclock it back to the 3.5GHz it was at before.

OC with a stock cooler isn't a very good idea. I recommend doing a stress test using Prime95 and monitoring the temperature with HWMonitor. If it stays under 90 degrees for about half an hour then you should be safe for general use.

Also, the post isn't hard to read.


Holy ****! Under 90c? 90 seems really high. I've always wanted it to be under 70c. Is it really okay for it to hit 90c in Prime95? Why does everyone say "under 60c" is like the best situation?

Under 70 while gaming is normal. It's what most people aim for.

Momentarily hitting 90 while testing should be harmless.

That's a relief. Here I was a little worried about my 66c gaming temps and my 75c stress tests. Good to know I'm in the green at 4.4ghz.

Even if your cpu would overheat it would downlock itself or shutdown to prevent from being damaged.

It was hovering at ~110 for about half an hour before I shut it off because the room it was in was getting too hot.
