Intel CPU questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
my latops CPU, (i5 3317U) is at about 53 'C idle and 73 'C when playing games.


are these temps okay?


when i am browsing AMD CPU forums, people reports max of 50's and 60's and people are saying thats a bit high.

so seeing as how my CPU goes to 70's it got me worried, based on other people saying AMD cpus at 50-60'c isnt good.

First we need ambient temps

Intel CPUs get much hotter than AMD, but that's not a problem. They are designed to handle the high temperature. High-end Haswell parts easily hit 100c under full load and on stock cooling @stock clockspeeds, if ambient is a bit high.
But even that's okay. It's pretty much IMPOSSIBLE to kill a CPU today from either brand from high temperature. They all have different safety-mechanisms that will protect it.

Intel has a max temp of 105*c, Most AMD chips have a max temp of 62*C so its common AMD guys will have way lower temps as their chips get damaged way sooner.
