Today I cleaned my cpu heatsink but I ran prime 95 before and after. So i let it run for about 5 mins while it was still (very) dusty and my 955 reached 63°. I always thought that the max temp was 62° and it would shut down when I crossed it. So now I cleaned my heatsink and the temps are back to normal. But is it normal that it didn't auto shut down or do the temps have to be higher than just 1° above the limit ?
