Hey guys, I just got a few new fans so I thought I would try pushing my OC a bit further. I went from 3.4GHz @1.1V to 4.2GHz @1.3V.

My core temps idle ~45c and load are around 65-70c. Are these temps low enough to keep my OC going 24/7, or will I eventually fry the CPU? Thanks!

My rig, if it matters:

i7 930 - 4.2GHz @ 1.3V
Corsair H50 CPU Cooler
GTX 480 stock settings
6 GB DDR3 Kingston KHX2000 RAM
Corsair 850TX (non-modular)
Corsair Force GT 90GB SSD

I have nearly same system as you and mine idles and maxes at same temps. Ambient temps make a world of difference. For insance, my CPU will idle at around 41-42C when the temp of my comp. room is 24C, but as the room temp increases as does the cpu temp.

I have 4.0 OC @ 1.26V. Might try that 4.2 @ 1.3 and see what happens. Like I said I have same PSU, Cooler, and CPU.

I've been running this OC since I finished building the comp which was a over a year ago and its still running strong. Anyone that tells you i7 930 shouldnt pass 60C on load is full of it. These processors can take upwards of 80-85C like nothing. There just isnt enough conclusive evidence to tell somebody "if you run your processor 5-10C hotter than another guys it will last X months/years shorter"
