Hi,
I have a quick question for you guys. I have a e2160 that I am having a bit of trouble OCing (I think its the RAM and not the CPU though). Either way, I am curious about the safe temperature of my chip.

I have one of the new revisions that has the M0 and not the L2 Core Steppings (I have a Q0752A443 with CoreStepping SLA8Z). I looked at the product specs of the two on Intel's site and found this:

SLA3H: Thermal Specification - 61.4C. This is the one most people have (and assume I have) and tell me to keep the temp under 55C for best results.

I actually have the SLA8Z which says:
Thermal Specification: 73.2C.
Does that mean I can OC this and as long as the temps are below around 68C, I should be fine (going by the 5-6C less than thermal spec)?

If so, this actually answers quite a few of my questions, like why it takes so much voltage to get a decent FSB setting on my chip - its because it can sustain itself at higher temps.

Thanks for the information

yea round that, but 68C still hot, need good cooling. Mine runs 40s easily on load.

I have an arctic freezer 7 but my ambient temps are bloody high for the winter (around 80F) so that doesn't help matters.

Currently, at stock, I get about 45C under load with ORTHOS running max thermal test for several hours.

I was hitting 55 and was getting worried, but if I can keep it under 60, I should be fine. This summer I will be living in a basement that doesn't get much warmer than 60F no matter how hot it is outside, so it will be cooler in about a month.

I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't frying it at 60C
