HEAT: How much is too much???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i have a phenom II x4 965. my heat sure isnt the lowest but this dorm is FAR from the best environment to cool a computer. im trying to OC and see how far and can get it and still be stable but i don't know how to tell if my temperatures are too high. granted that everyone has a different opinion of what temperature is preferred that temperature is unsafe. i've heard a lot of conflicting things: i like under 50 but 65 is the point where u should throw the switch, 55C isnt a problem, 65C isnt a problem, max is 90C, no temperature is super bad it just shortens the life of the device (i find that one the hardest to believe, everything melts). I prefer facts over opinions, does anyone have some tests or some documents on these processors that would shed some light on temperature, anything more noteworthy than word-of-mouth....

62C max
55C recommended, but above that is still okay

Maybe this will clear it up for you:

Also it depends on what revision of the chip you are using, either a C2 or C3 revision. C2 revision chips work best at a temp of 62c or below. As for the C3 you have a bit more headroom with 71c.

But check out the link, has some interesting stuff.
