84C max temp ok on i7 920 c0 3.2ghz? Tags: CPUs Cooling Intel i7 Last response: September 13, 2011 1:03 PM in CPUs Share sumrandomguy September 12, 2011 11:24:16 PM Just overclocked for the first time on stock cooling, the temps are hanging around 81C but are jumping to 84 occasionally. Is this safe? I'm running prime95 right now, and there's no crashing. edit: I'm using coretemp and talking about the cores.

And even on stock cooling, that's crazy that you would get such absurdly high temps. johnners2981 September 12, 2011 11:48:38 PM Thats a very high temperature even with a stock cooler but definitely get an aftermaket one Related resources I7 920 ...

Stays in low 40C most of the time. -Bruce Like you've been told - get a different cooler - these ain't no Sandy Bridge!!!!! lilotimz a b à CPUs September 12, 2011 11:59:12 PM That would be the temps i expect with the crappy stock cooler alongside running prime95. Get a good aftermarket cooler like the CM212+ and call it a day. computernugget September 13, 2011 4:53:22 AM a CM212+ is nice, there other xigmatek coolers that perform the same and sometimes cheaper. just make sure your case can fit these cooler cuz these things are huge. you can use a cooler master TX-3 its the smaller version of the 212+ these will usually fit most cases.
