Folding temps, ¿Acceptable?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I'm thinking about folding a few hours each day. In particular I worry about the temperature of the VRMs. They are usually at 88 º C while folding and at some point reach 90 ~ 91 º C.

These temperatures were taken after 40 minutes of folding:



Are these temperatures acceptable?

Thanks in advance

What is folding? Folding is a worldwide distributed computing effort conducted by Stanford University to understand how proteins assemble themselves. The real world applications of this research includes potential cures for diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, and Parkinson's. Nearly everyone's life has been touched by someone who has had one of these diseases or one of the many other diseases this research is aiming to cure. For more information, please see Stanford's Folding@Home website.

Graphics temps seem higher than I like to have mine, but I think it should be fine.

VRMs are safe up to 110c, iirc...
