What are some dangerous temperatures for i7 3770k?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
How hot do you have to get i7 3770k before it damages when gaming. And can the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 cool it down when gaming? i don't plan on overclocking but if i do how high can i overclock the i7 3770k with the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2?

-It doesn't do damage until around 90-100C.
-An Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 can cool a processor...lol
-The overclocking question is irrelevant. The highest overclock is what you want your temperatures to be. I tend to keep mine below 75C. Always remember - Every CPU is different.

As splashy said, there are safe ratings for each chip, which is what I personally tend to use. If it's under the max rated temps while I'm overclocking/stressing, I don't worry about it. Your overclocking is just based off of your chip/equipment. I've had lame chips in the past that didn't overclock well. Get a good motherboard, heatsink and memory and you'll be able to squeak more out of your chip's speeds. As far as what you have now, that should all be fine for a good easy overclock. If you don't overclock a stock heatsink is more than enough to keep it cool while gaming. Especially considering you've got a third party sink and paste, you won't have any problems with temps unless you decide to overclock.
