I would like to last my PC relatively long and know that high temperatures are not good for lifetime of components.
Also, I may to test some more demanding game like Crysis...
As long as your CPU core temperatures are below the Tcase specification it will last a long long time. The i5-4570 Tcase is 72.72c.Tcase
: Technically this refers to the temperature that you can measure using a thermocouple embedded in the centre of the heat spreader, but this is only done in the factory by Intel or by users willing to drill their heat spreaders open to insert a thermocouple. Therefore Intel provided a diode between and below the cores with a reading calibrated by the BIOS which can be used instead.Tjunction
: Synonymous with core temperatures and calculated based on the output from the DTS using the formula shown further down in this post.Tjunction Max
: This is the maximum temperature the cores can reach before the PROCHOT# signal is sent and thermal throttling is activated, although throttling typically occurs a degree or two below this.
It is generally considered that Tjunction (core temp) is about 10-15 degrees hotter than Tcase. so you are at least 20c below the safe limit.
