    So long as it's not peaking 70C, and runs fine.

    You could try to OC it that much, but I would be shocked to see it go that high. The safest way to d oit is to keep your temps under 50C and no more than 60C @ full load. You need to go up in small increments and just keep testing stability with OCCT, PRIME, and run some 3D benchmarks as well. Once you start get instabilities, back it down a few and call that your max.

    Even if those are degs-F I hope your temp measurement is faulty....

    What are you using to measure the temps?

    At about 70-80 degs C, the computer will turn itself off, unless you don't have overtemp protection.

    Are you using the stock cooler? You really should not be overclocking on the stock cooler and those temps are high. My CPU is stock @ 2.2GHz and I run it @ 2.8GHz 24/7. My idle temps are around 26C and I max out aroun d 45C full load of Prime for 12 hours. Your temps need to be much lower. How much vcore are you feeding it?
