post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
intel said 72 is the max, but some people say 80 and 85 is the max safe temps for the i7 860.

That temperature provided by Intel is the Thermal Specification which is not measured at core. Instead, it's measured dead center on the top of the CPU - on the same spot where thermal paste is applied.

So in other words, I think the best rule of thumb is to just try to avoid temps in the 80's for one reason: it could cause instability, and therefore it could cause frustration.

If you have Real Temp or Core Temp you can see how close you are to the TJ max which is the point at which the CPU will throttle itself because if you go farther you could do a big amount of damage.

I Prefer not to go over 75c on the I7 Series! if you want an overclock that goes above this on stress testing, you need better cooling!

For the sake of stability, yeah. But not to prevent damage.
