Hey again,

What is the maximum temperature you would recommend my FX-6100 at? I need a temperature that won't throttle the CPU or damage it in any way.

Also what is the best piece of software for monitoring core/CPU temperature. At the moment I'm using ASUS Thermal Radar which came with my mobo but for some reason I just don't trust it.

Please help.

Anytime any CPU runs around 90C it will throttle, but for that CPU, personally, I would keep it at 70C or lower. And the best CPU temp monitor that I know of is CPU-Z.

I tried to look for a way to check the temps on CPU-Z but I can't seem to find it. Its not under the tools drop down menu or on any of the tabs.
