I need to know what the maximum safe core temperature is of the Phenom II x4 945 with the C3 stepping.
The monitoring shows temp up to 57C, but if I raise the clock speed to over 3.7 Ghz, will it stay in the safe range, or will it damage the CPU?
57 C is at 3.55GHz, when all four cores are working, but not stressed; using stock cooler
When stressed the cpu, temp went up to 67C
I contacted AMD thechnical support, they said max temp is 72C.
Since that time I installed CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ and now it runs at 3.61 GHz with 56 C.
Thanx for the advice, I was in Florida that is why I was slow in replying.
