I read somewhere that the max temperature on this chip is 60c. Since I hit 56c is my chip in danger of overheating?

If your system is crashing at that temp, then yah, it's too hot. If not, you are good. m 0 l jimmysmitty a c 127 à CPUs a b 4 Gaming April 18, 2010 6:06:56 AM My Q6600 hits 50-55c and its fine but its max tep is 71c. Yours is 62c. But its really fine as long as it doesn't go beyond 62c you will be fine. m 0 l Related resources cpu temperature too high while gaming, crosses 100C - Forum CPU temp too high under load? - Forum i7 4790k cpu temps too high - Forum Help, CPU Temperature too high - Forum CPU temps too high?

I use the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and have never sen my core temps go past 54 C under full load video editing software or even under stress testing Prime 95. m 0 l tuesday0180 April 18, 2010 7:33:55 AM I do get crashes sometimes from battlefield 2. But it's weird because thats the only game that will crash to the desktop. Never had any other game crash on me before. m 0 l hundredislandsboy a b à CPUs April 18, 2010 10:38:26 AM Then I will venture to say your crashes are probably software related - buggy game or driver issues particular to that game. Check for patches to the game and latest drivers to your videocard. m 0 l Anonymous a b à CPUs a b 4 Gaming April 18, 2010 10:57:27 AM tuesday0180 said:phenom II x4 955 black edition stock.
