I'm abou to try to overclock my new system build i7 920 cpu but I figured I would run prime 95 first for 15 minutes. At load my temps average 63 degrees C with the low being 60 and the high being 65. Is this normal preoverclock? I know the overclocking guide on toms says you shouldn't go over 75 degrees at load and that worries me as I only have 10 degrees to spare from that.

My 920 hovers around 65-70c with stock HSF under load.

Here's some CPU temp ranges

60-65 great
70-75 good
80 decent
85 bit warm
90 better start ice me down
95 it's getting hot in here, is the fan on?
