    I am currently in the process of overclocking my i5-2500k processor with a Hyper 212+. I am currently at 4.4GHz and am sitting at an average 62-65 C at full load. Should I keep going, or are those temps about what I want to stick with? In general, what do I want to be my max temp at full load? I am also new to this process, so any other help with this is appreciated as well.

    65C at full load isn't bad at all. Especially since most of the time you won't even be at full load. Prime tests are designed to stress it to the max, so i wouldn't worry too much. As for going higher, unless your going for bench marks there's no reason to go any higher than 4.4GHz. I've got my i5 3570k at 4.0GHz and don't see a need to go higher. Anything under 90C should be fine :smile:

    As long as you don't hit 80C , You're fine. ( I would recommend under 70C )
