Is it safe to go over 95wTDP intel burn test? Tags: CPUs Burner Intel Overclocking Last response: October 16, 2011 11:18 AM in Overclocking Share mc_conor October 15, 2011 11:58:40 PM I have overclocked a 2500k which is 8 hours prime95 stable in small ffts. I was looking to widen testing with 20 or so runs of intel burn test and some blend on prime also. When i started the intel burn test within seconds i noticed that my TDP had shot up to well over 100W TDP and shut it off immediately. Is this normal? Prime95 stays within 95W range, usually within the 80s.

Watts=volts x amps, so it is normal to use more power when overclocking. | Report abuse mc_conor October 16, 2011 11:18:28 AM OK cool, thanks very much. It's bout 120W max. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Is it safe to go over 95wTDP intel burn test?> Related ressources: ForumIntel Burn in test Forum24 HRS of Prime 95 or Intel Burn Test for 50 passes?
