I'm sort of new to overclocking :p I just wanted to ask the community if these cpu temps are okay, or if I need to downclock or w/e

My specs are I5 3570k @4.2 ghz
CM hyper 212 evo

Temps:

Idle- 35c-42c

About an hour of battlefield 3 maxed out- under load 60c-65c. It doesn't get higher than that.

So, are my temps okay? Thanks in advance for the help I'm a brand new pc gamer and I'm loving it.

I would also like to ask, what would be considered a danger zone?

i think its okay mine is 75C at idle im running i5 2500K (not Overclocked) When i play i it is a bit laggy and the temp raised at 90C+. Btw are you using just stock heatsink? and i didnt noticed that you are already OC your pc?
 


You need to fix that. Re-seat the cooler and make sure that all the pins are firmly and securely in place. If you can pull up any of the pins when they're locked, they're not secured correctly.

Sorry OP, but I had to get that fixed, lol.
