OC Result in high temp

I would like to OC my current build which I have been running stock for quite sometime now. My first attemp a few weeks ago, I got it set to 4.2Ghz and it is running stable, but I feel it is running a bit hot. I am wondering if I need to upgrade my cooling fan. My goal is to OC it to 4.5.


Current Settings:
VID: .99 at idle
VID: 1.35 at full load
Temp idle: 35c
Temp Full load: 73c

CPU Voltage: offset [in BIOS]

Hardware Setup:
Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
CPU: i7-2600k
RAM: Corsair 32GB 1600Mhz [4 sticks]
Cooler: Corsair H60
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

  2. Sorry for bumping an old thread, but try OC'ing to your desired OC, then monitor the temps. If they get too hot, just turn the OC down a bit until it reaches a stable temp.
