Default How much further should I push this? E6600 w/ Stock Cooler

So far I got this running to 3.2GHz with the stock cooler, full load it gets around to 64C, should I try pushing it more, and if so how much you think I can hit?

If you hit 64c full load. You have already gone too far.

Intel rates that cpu at 60.1c

60 really, cause not overclocked it hits 60c full load... I didn't even change the voltage. I swear I heard 75c.

Im sticking with 3.2Ghz till I get a new cooler. My temps are only around 55C or so on full load so its not bad. At stock settings Im running 35C.

Ya... 65C is way to high. Id re-seat your HSF if it even hits 60C without an OC... expecially if your using the stock voltage.

I need to invest in water but the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme seems to preform just as good for 1/4th the price aswell as being much safer...

45C at 3.9Ghz on load is pretty dam good I think especially at the price difference when compared to water.

IDLE it is 35 - 37c so I'm not worried about it. During games it doesn't hit over 60, but during Prime95 it hits it.

Edit: Buying the Thermalright 120 Ultra Extreme will actually cost me more.

A waterblock is like $50, tubing is less then $10.

I already have a pump, radiator, fan, and a danger den fillport.

I would be using Coretemp to check real core temperatures rather than dumbguardian. lol
