    what is too hot for an i5-2300 (2.8 ghz)


      I have a

      i5 2300 2.8 ghz not over clocked 


      sitting temperature is around 42 degrees C

      i haven't tested intensive programs/applications  yet,but if I watch youtube ect. it gets around 50 degrees C


      my powerbox shoots out 400 volts for the entire computer and I have a xps 8300


      whats the highest temperature my cpu is supposed to handle?

      and if i were to overclock this how would I do it?
