CPU Temp?

What is the maximum safe temp for an overclocked AMD FX 4170 4.2 GHZ quad core?

  1. Below 60 for load is good, around 40 is good for idle (30 though is more ideal)
  2. Ok so I have a successful OC of 4.6Ghz at 1.4v and it doesn't get hotter than 50c. This is on an Antec H20 620 Cooler.

    10% oc which isn't too bad.
  3. Is the 50c idle, when playing games or during a stress-test?
  4. 50c is during stress test using Arma II Combined Ops at very high settings. The game is a more CPU intensive compared to GPU intensive. I also play COD and Battlefield 3.

    I also use 7zip when compressing files which uses 14GB Ram and 100% CPU load. I compress files upwards of 5GB maximum so far and it doesn't get higher than 50c/32c idle.
  5. Good job then : )
