When my CPU hit 90C for a second would that have damaged It, is there any software I can use to see if there is damage | Report abuse Reply to Computer tec jaguarskx CPUs Master December 29, 2012 8:15:02 PM CPUs are designed to throttle down to prevent damage in the event the temp gets too high. There should be nothing to worry about if your CPU has only hit 90C for a brief period of time. I would only worry if it hits and stays at 90C for an extended period of time like 1 week. | Report abuse Reply to jaguarskx Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>CPU Hit 90C> Related ressources: ForumShould I get one of those laptop cooling pads?
