I have my i7 920 D0 overclocked to 4.4 ghz with Hyperthreading enabled for 24/7 operation. turbo boost and speedstep disabled. Vcore at 3.5v. Idle temps are at 51,45,50,44. Played Crysis at max settings for about an hour and temps maxed at 67,64,66,63.
It has been stable for weeks. The only time i get a blue screen is when I run Intel burn test at very high setting using alot of ram. But you wont ever use that kinda ram in normal operation. These idle temps I got were shortly after playing Crysis.

Are these temps ok?

I would consider this stable even if it doesn't pass a burn test at a very high setting right?

What? These load temps too high?

Is your Vcore at 1.35V? 3.5 is not exactly reasonable.

What cooler do you have? Does it pass Prime95 (>10 hours)?

As cjl said no way is your Vcore at 3.5V that must be a typo.

I'm also curious as to what you are using for cooling to get those kinds of temps?

I would be really surprised if you can still stay at these temperatures with Large FFTs test of Prime95.

If it passes Linx, OCCT and prime96 > 12 hours, i consider it stable. I'd expect substantially higher temps under torture tests like those than under Crysis.

its not stable if it crashes under IBT, its probably close to stable if you can play crysis for hours on end. Still you need to do some OCCT or Prime 95 testing for atleast 8hours. and make sure your temps dnt get to high

I use a prolimatech megahalems with 2 scythe s-flex f 1600rpm in push/pull with arctic silver 5.
Are these temps good?
And yes typo, vcore is 1.35v.

Those temps are awesome if you can sustain them under Prime 95.
