Dont let your CPU go over 70c! - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Wow that's too bad SoaDMT, I'm sorry dude. Sounds like you just got unlucky. If it was heat that killed it, it musta been REAL hot, waaay over 70C. I've seen some stress tests people have done, pushing prescotts way up into the 90's and it was still fine no failure. They sometimes don't even start to really throttle until up into the 80's C range, for the prescotts. Ya I don't know why anyone would say to turn off thermal throttling though, doesn't sound like a good idea to me. I'd say always leave it on and just make sure you don't reach hot enough to engage it.


Just seems strange though, almost sounds like coincidence. Even if your pump died, you still had the HS on there, doesn't seem like it should have gotten hot enough to actually make it die. I mean those CPU's seem like they're pretty tough suckers. It amazes me the kind of heat they can take for how small the internal components are. I mean damn, they can reach almost boiling water temperatures and not die, it's impressive really. I guess you could try putting that cpu into a different mobo, just to make sure it isn't something like your mobo causing this and like I said, perhaps coincidence. Stranger things have happened . Good luck dude, it would be nice if it really was your mobo, cheaper than a new cpu anyway hehe.

Well, I have been saving for a new system anyway, so I will just get that. It seems to be running ok downclocked, so I think I can live with it till then.
