Check out the edit I made in that post before you think about exchanging it.

No stability problems yet, and I went a bit overboard and trying to mimic summer time ambient temps if my A/C ever breaks down for my room; so I turned on my Plasma TV and left my overheating 72 c Laptop on near my PC (which is what I'm typing on).

In 5 hours, I've hit a max temp of 80c, and I usually hover between 75 c - 78 c. Does this sound stable so far? I plan to run it for another 5 hours or so, maybe even 12 just to stay safe, I may even post my screenshots.

However, I haven't calibrated my Real Temp so it only shows how long I've been running it with Prime95 in the background, not the load it's been under.

Honestly, its a shame I don't have watercooling, from what I see 4.6 GHz at only 1.29v is pretty good... I think I got lucky with my processor and could have probably reached 5.2 GHz easily.

By the way, any suggestions on lowering Temps besides buying a new Cooler/Case? Is 80 c safe for a Prime95 Blend run? I kind of put all my breads in one basket when I built this case, so I'd like the CPU to last for around 3 - 5 years.
No one really knows max safe temps. I would say if you want to keep it a while then keep temps south of 70-75C. Considering prime heats up the CPU more than anything else, 80C in prime may be OK.

Try this, after you are done with your prime run and get your screenshot, reset the temps in realtemp and leave it running. Do whatever you normally do for the day; play games, encode, fold, etc... whatever. Then take a look at what max temp on the hottest core is for the day. it should be 70-75C (maybe lower) if your max prime temp was ~80C.

Yep, HT is on, and Air Cooling is meh. I idle around 35 c. The only thing I can't personally think of to cool down my CPU is to reapply the Heatsink using a line method.

I installed the Hyper 212+ by using the spread method on the heatsink alone. It essentially covered all 4 heatpipes with a very thin coating. I'm getting mixed comments about this... Some say Spreading is good, others say that its not on Heatpipe Heatsinks like Hyper 212+, that I should have just filled in the gaps along with a pea size dot and let the pressure do the rest.

Would it be worth it to remount my Heatsink? or would I not see any differences?

I used the pea size method and had great results with my Hyper 212+. My pea might have been on the larger side though.

Hihi, thanks! Thank you for schooling me on one vs four cores. It seems I am still stuck with my Q9500. I can push 2500k to 4800 @ 1.3800 manual vcore Prime95 stable but I keep bsoding with offset and then I have to reset my BIOS. but I think it is a bit too high. As I said, I am not using manual voltage.

My batch is L04B354. I think it above average but nothing special.

On my previous 25H prime blend run at 4.8GHz (1.37v) my highest temps were 67-76-78-74.

I've currently been running prime blend for 4h30m now at 4.7ghz.

Max temps: 62-69-70-69
Avg temps: 58-66-66-66
Max voltage: 1.344v
Avg voltage: 1.329v
Min voltage: 1.320v

This is with LLC set to ultra high, BIOS voltage set to 1.335v & pll overvoltage enabled. If this makes it 12h, I want to see if disabling pll overvoltage makes any difference in stability and/or temps.

Thats a pretty substantial temp drop (8C) for only sacrificing 100mhz. Really wanting a true water cooling solution now =)

I had problems with offset voltage too and just switched to using manual. There was only a ~5w idle difference if that. I still speed step down to 1.6ghz for idling.

I may actually try manual. Do you think it would ba safe to use 1.38/1.40 voltage?

I ran 4.8ghz 1.37v at load with temps maxing at 78C. I would say keep prime temps <80C. Only way you'll know it's safe is if your CPU still works and hasn't degraded after 3 years or so. Lower temps are always better, just depends on much you're willing to risk.

So i tried out those settings munaim1 and so far so good. It's running a bit hot I set it to 1.455v running for 3 hours now max temp 81.
