My cpu is running stock speed at 2.4GHZ-2.7GHZ with turbo core on. normally the temp is around 75-85 degrees ferinheight. I recently overclocked it to 3GHZ and now the temp is 110-130 degrees ferinheight.

Q: Is this a safe temp or i need to buy a better heat sink because I'm using the stock one.

FM1's run cool anyway. 130F is nothing. My CPU runs at 194F at 5GHz. I need another fan for the radiator I think :P

thats pretty cold! I once had a macbook that had a broken cpu fan, and i could run it to 85 degrees CELCIUS, and then it would overheat and shut off. XD but yeah thats a really safe cpu temp.
