Real world temparatures vs Prime stable temparatures

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My questions :-

If you have primed for 12 - 24hrs and found to be stable with an ivy bridge say with 85C highest temperature reading, are you really going to expect gaming and video encoding applications to regularly hit that 85C?
Are there applications that actually raise the temps like prime does?
What is the temperature vs lifespan graph of an overclocked ivy bridge processor?

Synthetic benchmarks just stress the components to the absolute max. If you were to ask whether if you GPU hits 80*C during 3DMark or heaven and would hit those temps during games then the answer would probably be yes. Games now require more GPU grunt than the CPU. (Unless you go MP BF3).

Moreover, the cpu also would hit temps that high if you were rendering movies along with other CPU bound apps, then the cpu would also hit temps as shown during p95.

The life span of the processor is inversly proportional to the temps & corresponding voltages. The higher you go without adequate cooling, the lower you processor lifespan would be
