I have had this 6600k for about a month now, I have it cooled with an older Corsair A50 heatsink with 2x120mm fans on a push pull. My idle temp is about 25 degrees celsius and my load (Prime95 or gaming) hits around 60 degrees celsius. Is this a good range? This being my first ever Intel cpu; I have been very happy with its results thus far.....

Those temps seem about right. I would imagine you could to 4.2-4.3 while still keeping temps in line with your cooler.

Vanibanez,

Looks like we build new at the same time. My sig has my mild overclocks and my temps
reach around 65 - 67C with stock cooling Prime 95 / Orthos for a couple hours so you're
about right where expected. I suspect I'll need a little more vcore to go higher.
