I'm playing around with all this temp monitoring programs I've downloaded. I came across with this "Distance to TJ Max". What is this? Is a higher value good or bad? I'm getting around the mid 60s.

It is the "Distance to TJ Max", so the higher the better.  The reason why is that the Tj Max is the temperature where the CPU would throttle itself down in order to reduce the heat.  The Tj. Max is 98°C, so the further you are away from it, the better.  ;)

 

In other words, your core temps are in the 30s, so you're all set.

it's the thermal junction max. if the cpu reaches the tj max, it will throttle to prevent damage

I was recently told that it throttles to only reduce the heat, but if it doesn't throttle for some reason, then the CPU will turn itself off at 130°C in order to prevent damage.  So if this is true, then these things are tougher than we think (not that I would want to test it...).

I see that your BCLK is at 99.90 MHz.  Disable CPU Spread Spectrum.  smile.gif

I thought it's better turn ON. Guess not then. I'll turn it OFF.

It is for the P67 chipset, but the Z68 chipset seems to have a problem with it for some reason.

Hello , sorry to open this up again but i saw you mention the CPU spread spectrum and wanted to know if mine at 100.11x40.0 on a i5 6600k @ 4.0GHz should be turned off ?
Temps are 25-35C and TJMax is 74-78 .
Thanks
