So far, all my stress tests say I am good to go.

 

But I just wanted to ask the pros first.

 

 

 

I have been playing fallout 3, but no program I run will get the temps as high as a stress test.

That's nothing to be worried about. 73c at IntelBurnTest is completely normal.

 

 

Thanks.

 

 

Check out my WEI score before

Again Nope! The stock cooler from Intel delivers temperatures that high or higher at stock CPU speeds.

 

 

Do you guys think I should/can push for 4.2GHZ?

Exactly. My 920 will hit 77c load at stock speeds with the stock cooler. Overclock it to 3.44 and I hit over 90c.

 

As far as overclocking it more, as long as it's stable and you're comfortable with the temperatures, 4.2ghz should be attainable.
