I have my system OC'ed to 3.5 GHz.<br>
Idle temps are 43c TAT, do you guy's feel that this is too high to run 24/7?<br><br>
I understand that you should not go over 55-60c, but what about safe idle temps for 24/7 operation?

What are your load temps? Those are that matter.<br><br>
And 60C is the max temp to run 24/7 (generally when we talk about temps, we talk about 24/7 temps)<br><br>
I am not afraid to run a little higher though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Using TAT at 100% Load the temps will go over 60c, but when running most games etc. they will not go over 55c.

you should be fine in my opinion <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

The TAT stress test places a harder load than even some other 100% load systems, and most games do not hit 100% load and when they do it is not usually sustained for long periods of time, which is why the temps are different.<br><br>
While 60.1c is the listed thermal threshold for stock C2D CPUs, I usually recomend you keep an overclocked one lower than 55c, as long as the voltage guidlines are being followed as well. Ovclocked, over-volted CPUs have much lower temp thresholds, so if you are using more than 1.35v and plan to use this CPU for more than a year or so you might want to back it down a bit.
