Is 52C too high for my CPU?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Like it says up top. OC'd to 2.64Ghz Just want to make sure 52C isn't too high. I have the Shutdown temp set to 60C just in case, but I know that doesn't always work. So far everything's stable, but I know I need better cooling, as this water **** just isn't cutting it. Time to go with a better WC setup, and a peltier.


EDIT: 52C is under load with Prime 95 - running torture test.

Those are some high temps you got, you better watch those. If you reach 55C then it's time to replace your cooling solution pretty quickly. What are your vcore settings at?
