    My FX6300(OC'ed to 4.6Ghz) is idling at 42 degrees celcius, is it acceptable?

    The max temp it reaches while playing games is about 60ºC. Is this normal for this cpu? Is it at least acceptable? I wouldn't like to Prime95 it since I'm almost sure it will BSOD on me. I usually play my games for an hour at a time at most, normally not even that.
