90C on high or 60C on low (which is already near Intel and AMD cap)
the problem is boiling
take your pick though
I had the first Core Duo, sucker got so hot (80C+) it would shut down. Sure it was clogged but it was 1.66GHz , but the die is 90.3mmsq
check the tjunction again
you want that in your LAP??? I've owned a Sager with a Quad Core C2D at 3GHzOC and it was running 80C again, but again, that's the best you could get, not just a mainstream fast
Intel Hexacore SB is 434mmsq, which keeps temps a lot lower.
Intel 3770k is 160mmsq, with 4 cores and
HT, which means, why am I making an unlocked chip again??? The point is clear, HT is there to deny the reference why more cores, or why HT is needed in the first place. 4770k is a bit larger (177) but not enough, and I know for a fact that went into a iGPU. I wouldn't even THINK of overclocking those
But look at AMD. I'm selling a 4100 that idled down to 0~1C. Any lower? HA HA HA...
My new Piledriver has a die of 315mm I think, which is large. Naturally disabled cores means a cooler chip, but I'm idling again below 10C with 8 cores and merely one can be doing any glance of work. Flip the switch and it gets warm, but doesn't boil, and it is very very fast.
