    Max Temp for a Core i7 930

    Does anyone know what the max temp a core i7 930 can run? I've been folding on it for the past 8 hours @ 4GHz, but according to HWmon, it's maxing at 85c under load. Will sustained folding at these temps hurt the CPU?

    Those temps are too high for extended periods of time. Your'e going to want to keep your CPU cores below 80 degrees Celsius, I'd aim for below 75. 80 degrees Celsius is fine for maximum load like stress testing.

    Figured... Is the tjmax on the 930 the same as on the 920?

    Either way... new cooler time.

    You can check in RealTemp, it should be at 100 degrees Celsius. It's my preferred temperature monitor too, it's the most accurate and has plenty of useful features.

    I use to use that on my last system. Lately I started using CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro. Lots of good info like how many watts the CPU is consuming.

    I use both, but I trust RealTemp more. I've gotten some strange numbers out of HWMonitor and programs that use that software like EVGA E-LEET.

    Interesting... I personally haven't noticed anything, but I'll run it just to be sure.

    I would say the max safe temp should be equal or less to an 920, 67c max cpu temp, now your core temp should be less than 80c for folding just to keep it safe.

    My main rig CPU @ 4.0 folding 24/7 at no more than 80c normally it stays in the lower 70's.
    MY borg i7 C0 CPU @ 3.8 runs hotter low 80's to mid 70's folding 24/7.

    I'm sure you be keeping your CPU for a while, so i think you wanna keep it low to mid 70's for 24/7
    and i highly recomend using Real Temp.

    Yeah let me clarify - I was assuming your cores were at 85 degrees Celsius.

    Yeah my cores are at 85. Now that the weather has cooled off, the cores are at 77c max. average of 75 between the four. The CPU temp is at 64c. So it sounds like its getting close. Thanks for the info.
