i want to overclock my cpu and my cooler is intel fan(stock). i've read about overclocking that i have to care about my cpu temperature and it shouldn't be more than 65 Celsius ! but my question is what does the meaning of cpu temperature? because programs such as everest which show temperatures i have to temperatures.core temperature and core temperature.which one is they mean? 65 for core or cpu? for example in overclocking maybe my cores temps reaches to 80 or 70 but my cpu temp is about 45.is it ok or i have to stop it?
