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: 4.2Ghz 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

That's not hot.

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.
