Solved Maximum i5 3470 cpu temp under 100% load Tags: Intel CPUs Intel i5 Last response: October 30, 2013 2:22 PM in CPUs Share thek90 October 30, 2013 2:14:34 PM I tried benchmarking my i5 3470 oced at 3.7 ghz with intel xtu. At one point the cpu temp hit around 91c for about twenty seconds. Is there any damage done to the cpu?

However, if the processor routinely gets that hot under high load, I'd take a look at the CPU heatsink. Casey Reply to cklaubur dextermat a b à CPUs October 30, 2013 2:22:05 PM Hi, Yes, try bringing the voltage down or buy an aftermarket cooler because 91 degree is hot and will bake the chip on the long run.

I highly recommend something like a Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212 if you want to leave your chip in turbo mode all the time.
