Hi guys, I'm doing my first attempt at over clocking and I am just wondering what temperatures I should be looking for on my stress test to know when I have achieved a safe but good overclock?

My CPU is i7 5960x, water cooled by H110i GTX. My power supply is EVGA 1300G2. I don't know if knowing my other parts is relevant or not.

I am using AIDA65 for the stress test. Temps have been maxing out at around 75C or so thus far...
I always keep in mind that the temp should not exceed 80ºC while 100% load
