how long should i run cpu burn in for? i have the stock cooler on at the moment and i have clocked my 3.4 to 3.8 and its working nice and stable but how long should i run cpu burn in and it has been runnin for 5 mins and and the max it got to was 65 soo should i get a typhoon and how long should i run it for to test my stock
Yes, those temperatures are a bit high in my opinion, and a better cooling never hurted anyone. I wouldnt know about CPU Burn in, but I sure can tell you abour Prime95. Try two instances of it, 100% Full Load, and then see those temperatures. The "good" temperature never exceeds 50C, 55C at max, but if you want a ok overclock, AND to keep your CPU alive, don't go past 60C!
thanx for that tis much appreciated im gonna stick my cpu down to stock and leave it till i get my big typhoon how much do you think i will be able to clock my 3.4 too, i have good airflow and am gonna buy and good case too soo
