CPU temperature vs lifespan

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I've been doing some folding and that is a bit like stress testing - 4 cores running at 100%. If I use my fan controller and crank up all the fans, I'll be at 44c. It's too loud for me to sit there at that level, so if I turn things down to a quiet/regular noise level, I'll be at 49c.

I was wondering if a 5 degree higher temperature is going to make a real difference in the lifespan of my CPU?

Only above 60C.

49 degrees Celsius on a CPU isn't going to do any harm, that really isn't anywhere close to the degradation/max temp point for an AMD CPU.

Agree under max temps on CPU no harm done unless your unstable at your overclock, but that wasn't question I guess.

your fine until 72C. it's the max that chip can handle before it throttles itself.

As others have said......There sure seems to have been quite a few people buy 955BE's back when. I have one still NIB after a year just looking for a job. I can sell desktop socket 775's to "friends" and realitives but havent found a non-enthusiast that wants this one these days.The general public does not seem to have a problem owning a priced right socket 775 to browse and open email.

It's fine, I'm not 100% sure about AMD but I had a pentium 4 CPU that idle'd at 50C and while playing games was at 65-70C.......and I still have that computer today and it works fine.

49C is well below the degradation point of that CPU, so you're completely fine

Thanks everyone. I feel much better about turning down the fans and still keep the rig folding when summer starts here in The Commonwealth. Reps for all.
