Whats too hot or dangerous temp for the i7 860 Tags: Intel Laptops Core Intel i7 Overclocking Last response: January 12, 2010 3:29 PM in Overclocking Share usparker January 10, 2010 10:39:46 PM Right now im running the i7 860 4gb ram and a gtx275. Today, i used speedfan and noticed that my Core temps were at like Core 0 65c Core 1 65c Core 2 61c Core 3 63c Core 4 64c Core 5 64c Core 6 63c GPU 51c Are these dangerous temperatures? I used to use a laptop that ranged from 60-80C, i knew that was hot, especially for a laptop, but is it real bad for a desktop as well?

If it's idle temps, YES it's way too hot. If it's Prime/IBT (or other stress test) temps, then NO, the temps are fine. m 0 l usparker January 11, 2010 1:37:04 AM sorry, i shouldve given more info. I check it while playing some games, after i was playing for like 30 minutes m 0 l Related resources My i7 860 seems to run too hot - Forum i7 860 60c is it too hot? - Forum Stock Settings i7 860 running too hot - Forum I7 860 running too hot? - Forum is this too hot??? i have an i7 4770k no overclocking and a hyper 212 evo but idle temps are around 30-36c is that too hot? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

If that's acceptable, try Prime95 for CPU ... OCCT does the monitoring for you...with P95, you'll need coretemp / realtemp m 0 l ekoostik a b K Overclocking January 12, 2010 3:29:13 PM ^ +1. I found Speed Fan to reports temperatures that were too low, the offsets* were not adjusted correctly for the 1156 CPUs. Always better to verify temps with a second utility. RealTemp can be downloaded here: http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/ Or their latest RC (3.5 RC6): http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/Real-Te... CoreTemp can be found here: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ EDIT: *To be more technically correct, I believe it was using the wrong max value. I had to adjust the offset to get the correct temperature. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Solvedi7 what is too hot Forum SolvedCPU temp too hot?
