i7 990x max temperature

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So I've had my computer for a while, but I've recently decided to oc my i7 990x. I just wanted to know whats probably a good max temperature under prime95 considering that I'd like the cpu to last another 4 or so more years, I've had it on stock for about 4 years.

General rule for any processor is a maximum of 95 degrees but for a healthy limit during stress testing about 85-90, but people try stay around 85. You need to keep in mind, that the CPU will never reach the temperatures it does while doing real world things, even gaming so that will be okay.

you had a 990x for the last 4 years and u had it at stock? ...... oh man talk about wasted potential lol

as long as you stay below 85 ur good.

Thug life.

Temps are ok as long as there's no throttling.

Can I be your friend? lol

Also, wouldn't your parents know the max temperature of that chip? Seeing they work at Intel?

My dad prefers I don't overclock normally so I kinda just didn't ask him but assumably yeah they would know. He is partially right though since i don't do any particularly cpu intensive stuff. Rarely would I even use the extra power
