Cpu overclock cooler not hot

Soo I got myself an i5 2500k and over clocked it to 4.6ghz with an cooler Master 412s. Is it normal that the cooler stays soo cool ? The fins don't feel hot at all like ambiant. Even the copper heatpipes feel like ambiant. Is this normal ?

Cold is good but is it even under load, also check the actual tenpatures rather then going by feel.

Yes, that's normal. If it's hot, it usually means there isn't enough airflow carrying the heat away.

Under full 100% stress test it goes to max 60 degree with a pretty big over clock. It''s soo weird it doesnt even feel hot

Yeah but you would atleast expect it to heat up the heatpipes a bit

Yes, but only a bit.
