How high of temp for an i5 2500K in Prime95?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I just ran Prime95 with m i5 2500K at 4.8GHZ for 10 minutes, it was reaching into the 75 degrees so i decided to stop but it wasn't going above those temps. I down clocked it to 4.6Ghz with a voltage of 1.35 and i was getting make 66 degrees after 10 minutes, then i decided to run 3Dmark11 and i got a max temp of 55 degrees. So im not sure how to determine the max temp i should go in Prime95 if while bench marking and playing games its much lower. Thanks!

I would think 75C is ok, but myself, I wouldn't go much if any higher. Just not comfortable with it. But hey, it won't ever get that hot during normal usage anyway, Just when you stress test! wink.gif

I've heard 72.6 is Intel's suggested limit
