Its always 30-70% load 24/7 running java instances. My question is what is a safe temp for me to be at 24/7 ? Right now it stays between 55C and 65C No higher then 68 allmost at 100% usage. Average around 60C. So is 55C -65c everyday. at 30-70% load going to break my ***? More about : questions 920 Ironsounds a b à CPUs February 2, 2013 6:07:10 PM Hello...

Maybe a better CPU cooler would make your CPU last a bit longer, but maybe it's not worth spending 80$ just for that. cuecuemore a b à CPUs February 2, 2013 7:06:39 PM Yes, those temps are solid. I've seen a 920 run at 82C under full load for a week and still be fine. (though I wouldn't recommend that) pauls3743 a b à CPUs February 2, 2013 7:56:51 PM Sounds like you already have an excellent cooling setup, stick with it. Also, I don't know how old your i7-920 is but there are a few out there that are 4 years old, that's nothing to be sniffed at. Azn Cracker a b à CPUs February 2, 2013 8:03:11 PM Yea its a little high but it won't burn your cpu anytime soon. But if you run this 24/7 for a long time, it will shorten the lifespan of the cpu a little. Nothing to worry about, by then the cpu would be obsolete. shzzit February 2, 2013 11:54:37 PM Thanks for all the information guys. And good luck to you all. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
