          , Thank you very much for joining the Intel® Processors communities.

          We normally recommend to use the processor at stock configurations, altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor and other system components, and may reduce system stability and performance and it is not cover under warranty. Based on that information, at this point we cannot confirm if that is a expected behavior for the processor, because the tests done by Intel on them are done under stock settings, let me apologize for that. However, most of the times when the processor is overclocked it is expected for the temperature to increase, but every scenario is different.

          Please use the following tool to verify the actual clock speed and temperature of the processor:

          Please let us know the results of the tool.

          Any further questions, please let me know.
