Is 70c - 75c a good temp range for an overclocked i5 3570k to 4.4ghz under load?

This is with a push-pull config Hyper Evo 212 and 5 case fans. This is the first time I've overclocked something, so I want to make sure it's normal. This was stress tested with OCCT.

I think 7zip is a better stress test, but it's a little less realistic than even a 64 player battlefield match or folding. the temps will get very high

you probably already have 7zip installed, as it is a very fast and popular compression dilly

just look under the tools tab for the benchmark, and watch those temps! also good for stability test, to make sure you have correct voltage

Make sure you have turbo on and you've increased your wattage limit or you'll hit your TDP limit and have your clocks bounce up and down.

Huh, I didn't know you could do something about that. I had that problem with Intel Burn Test when I had my CPU at 4.5 GHz.

Turn on turbo, set your turbo core speeds to your target OC and change the wattage and amperage to like 1.8 times their initial value.

Many people don't do this and have crappy overclocks. Temps will go up, so dial back the voltage a bit.

70 - 75c = your burning your cpu. Anything under 60 C is considered safe, 60 - 70c continue with caution.

The 3570k can safely operate at 80-90 degrees under load. What are you talking about?

That's not true. That was true for Phenom II processors, but AMD processors are totally different. Intel processors have a very high temperature threshold.

That sounds pretty good to me. My cooler has similar performance to a 212 evo but it doesn't have a spot for a second fan, nor does it have much breathing room. My case is pretty cramped and my cooler is 'low' profile, meaning it's just not full height. With the same overclock (4.4, not sure about your voltage) I hit 90, but my CPU is pretty mediocre. With your temps I'd push it further unless you were shooting for a specific goal. My goal was 60 fps in my main FTB world and 4.3 had dips into the 50s fairly often, 4.4 was what I needed.

its fine. as long as it doesnt get into the 90c range 70-80 is perfectly safe. actually 100c isnt going to kill your cpu, you just dont want to have it running at that speed for lengthy amounts of time otherwise things will start to melt.
