i have following temps on my core i3 530 at 4.0ghz overclock on stock intel heatsink.
my max cpu temp is 68 after 20 minutes of prime 95 and stays at 67'c as shown by speed fan and hwmonitor.
my core temps are:-
maximum 92'c on both cores
so just want to know whether these are safe for 24/7 operation.

More about : core temps safe

92 C is too high I think (if it is reporting accurately). What do they read at idle? Does the CPU temp go below ambient (impossible)? Are the cores far above ambient (improbable/not good)?

At idle the core temps are 46 and 42'c.No cpu temp does not go below ambient.Well ambient is about 35-38'c.Cpu idles at 46'c and 58' on load on p 95 at stock settings.Also can you tell me what's the maximum core temperature for core i3's?

Intel used to post this, however now I can't seem to find it. Should have been here I think:

Anyway, a good rule of thumb (unless otherwise noted) is stay less than 70C on CPUs and less than 95-100C on GPUs.

Yes that is the Tcase temperature and it stays at 68'c max,but i want to know what is the maximum for temperature for cpu core.

is about 55-65 an ok temp for core one and two when just browsing the internet with one tab open and by the way that is the temp it is right now while i am typing this message and this forum is the one and only window open on my computer right now. also is 65-75 ok for playing a game or watching a movie.

Temps when idle should be in the 30s, sometimes even 20s. Your i3 should not be idling more than that, 45 is too high, my 4.5ghz i7 950 is at 45 degrees celcius when im running alot of applications. When i play a game my i7 950 is at 60-65 degrees MAX. Your cpu is too hot! Are you using the fan that came with the cpu??? it seems like you are, stock fans arent built for overcloking, if you want to run at 4ghz, you need aftermarket cooler.

also what i have is a laptop and it is in degrees celsius for what i use to get the temp so are the temps that i mentioned before ok for degrees celsius and also how is it possible to get and install an after market cooler for a laptop.

Ohh laptops are different, temps of 55 to 65 is pretty normal for laptops when running applications.

well lately when i am watching a movie or playing a game online my laptop has been 65-75 degrees celsius for core 0 and core 1. is that normal. also i my fan even tries to run which now it hardly ever even tries to run it runs for 5-30 seconds and it used to do that about every 5-10 minutes but now it does that about every 30-60 minutes is any of this normal.

i need an answer immediately!!!!!!!!!

Yea those temos are fine, laptop cpus have a high threshold - meaning that they can last upto 100 degrees with nothing going wrong (apart from shortened life). Your cpu temperature is normal, 65 is average especially for gaming. And also most modern laptops turn off if the cpu gets too hot. I know this because i personally tested the theory by removing my fan from my laptop and running prime95 (core 2 extreme) , the heat protection kicked in and shut down the laptop. ( i know very stupid, was only a kid when i did that)
