With Intel not giving a true accounting for what TJMax is, coretemp, realtemp and speedfan are all based on the distance to TJMax but they are guessing at what TJMax truly is.

A little extra heat will hinder an overclock, but it is not a CPU killer. Voltage is the quicker killer, regardless of temps.

Best advice is to keep everything in a zone comfortable to you. If you find yourself thinking the temps or volts are to high, back things down till you don't think about it anymore..
