CPU temperature

Im running my Intel i7 3770k at max frequency of 4.2 Ghz. It reaches a MAX temp of 55 degrees while being tortured. Idle Temps are about 35 degrees.

Should i be concerned about this? Should i push it further? At what point Should i be concerned with a temperature.

  1. I would not be concerned in the slightest, it throttles at 105/95 (I forget which).
  2. Ok. So if you were in my shoes right now, you would push it further? So once i start pushing 90 is when i want to lay off a tad?
  3. i've got mine to 4.3 at lowish voltage, maxing at 65ish. I've stopped there, its far enough away from throttling that it is very unlikely to effect longevity. 90 I would suggest would have a chance to shorten lifespan, as I treat the throttling as being a safety feature, and you shouldn't use it too close to that imo.

    fyi i'm on a 3570k
