Just wondering, what don't you guys let your 2600k's get to?

post #1 of 6

Parts are all almost here, just waiting on cooler.

Going to immediately start overclocking and see how far I can get with my i7-2600k. Just wondering since it'll be my first time running Intel. During a Prime95 Blend stability test, at what temps would you say get to a no-no for 24/7 use.

Thanks guys!

Under 85C is what most people will say.

Oh, cool. I thought it'd be a lot lower than that for 24/7 use. Thanks for the fast reply.

Yeah that's what I thought but i'm getting the same answers in my research while I stress test. Stressing 4.6ghz @ 1.325v (1.376 w/ vDroop set to high) and have hit a max of 76 w/ my H70 (which seems a bit high, but acceptable).

Not to mention, Prime Blend is going to get your CPU WAYYYY hotter than any real world use. My friend last night was stressing his 2600k while I was building my rig (I was at his house. Always nice to bs w/ a friend while building ) with his new Silver Arrow (he sold me his H70) and hitting like 73 in prime but low to mid 60's while folding. So yeah, prime hits your cpu way harder than real world usage so these cpu's have some nice temp headroom. I love it.

I know i don't have a 2600k but i don't like to go above 70. You'll get different answers from everyone though.

70 - 75c is about my limit for Prime95 testing, IBT is 80c...

Any higher than that I am not comfortable with...

Intel sets thermal shutdown at 95 - 100c to "prevent damage" so if 80c was going to damge your cpu I would have to think they would set the thermal limit lower..
