For application, I did a single, straight line down the center of the IHS as per Artic's instructions. Should I have done it differently?

Also, according to Blameless, it sounds like TJ Max is relative to other factors (such as voltage).

I'm going and forth between feeling comfortable with a 24 hour Prime test and not feeling so comfortable with it. My temps sometimes get within 10 degrees of TJ Max (during a certain part of the Prime95 test).

If I can get 24 hours stable, I'd feel comfortable with my normal temps, but I don't want to kill my chip to get there...

Oops I just noticed its a 3570 so your temps are perhaps a bit high. I use the line method too. If you are unsure take the cooler off and you will see by the TIM footprint if you are making good contact. Post a pic and the guru's will help out.

Yes it is relative , no point in being at 60 degrees with a vcore of 1.6. For me less than 90 degrees and less than 1.525 v would do for 24/7 hours but just my personal limit based on info I have read here on OCN.

Perhaps try the " rice grain method " see if it helps. I think you could bring your temps down.

What do you have in your loop ?
