High temp. when encoding DVD

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My cpu temp. reaches 70c - 76c when encoding a DVD. In general, what exactly is considered a 'dangerous' temp. that a cpu should never reach? I'm fine with the high temp as long as there's no risk in frying it. And anyway, it only takes 15 - 20 min. to encode the whole thing.

maybe lower Overclock when you encode movies.or get a better cooler.

You may want to consider a better cooler sometime soon.

Diabolic, don't worry about the cpu "frying". That physically impossible to happen. Nothing is going to catch on fire and melt . At those temps the machine should shut off or just lock up. Check to make sure the HSF is mounted correctly. You may not have it mounted correctly which could be the cause of the high temps. Sounds like your not getting proper contact.
I've ran my stock cooler on my Opteron 170 without any thermal compound(for testing purposes) and it never got close to those temps during full load.

Good luck buddy

Good advice there thinker.

but I would have to disagree with one thing you said.

It may not catch on fire - but it sure as hell can melt(the silicon underneath that is)

Its surprising that the cpu hasnt locked up yet, but even MORE surprising that it hasnt died yet!

76! Good golly!
and this is degree CELCIUS!?? dam

turn that thing of right now!
I'm as surpised at it still working as I am at the... composed reaction of the other members towards this - I dunno how they arent alarmed.

60c is the MOOOOOSSST your chip should feel.
Check your mounting man! :\\

What is CERTAIN, is that whether or not it dies now, just you running your chip at that temperature for... halfday, has taken some years off its lifespan.

Grim, technically the melting point of silicon is around 1,400 Celsius
