    CPU Core Temp. reached 95°C overclocking Intel i4790k to 4500MHz, is this okay?

    Boosted CPU to 4500MHz and core voltage was 1.250v. Core Temp. got to max 95°C, when I started stress test prima95 + in-game Rocket League + streamed to twitch + opened a lot of apps (OBS, Streamlabs, Steam, Temp apps) + 5-6 pages in browser. (CPU usage was %100, game kept crashing every 2-3 minute)

    This is my rig:

    Samsung U28E590D 28-Inch 4K LED Monitor (3840 x 2160) running @2560x1440

    I had to pull it down to 4400MHz and lower voltage to 1.200 to stabilize. Now when I ran the stress test + everything at these values, i got max 87°C.

    Without stress test, temperature is much lower around 70°C or so. I wanna make it 4500MHz, would it be okay to go with it?
