Well i got it to get to about 85C but i was just doing it to test out heat sinks i loaded it with a youtube vid. Oh and unfortunatly the optiplex model does not have any monitoring hardware on it, it was designed to run as is so i cant OC it T.T.

If you have an asus motherboard, you should use their software to know your cpu temperature. The name of the software is Asus Pc Probe 2.
The following link is to download the Asus Pc Probe 2, Im using it and its very cool.
