The TCase is a number established by Intel® as a point of reference in order to understand what could be expected as per normal processor temperature.
When the processor is stressed out meaning that you are running heavy processor applications that take control of the CPU or uses it at 100% the temperature will go beyond the TCase. It can perfectly reach 80 to 85 degrees and the processor will still be OK. The cooling fan is in charge to keep that temperature there.
Guest: At what temperature i start degrading my processor ?
Daniel: there is no such temperature, processors do not degrade since they are designed to work at high temperatures.
Guest: ok , then why does the processor thermal throttle at a certain temperature ?
Daniel : Please provide a detail description of the issue you are experiencing.
Guest: I am not having an issue , i am trying to avoid damaging my $1000 processor.
Guest: That is why i am asking to know about temperatures.
Daniel : To confirm, processors are designed to work at high temperatures so if there is any issue let us know.
Guest: Are those temperatures beyond 1000 c ?
Daniel : the processor will automatically shut down when reaching 100C to prevent damage.
A quick Google search showed this information, that you should already have seen. Both come from Intel sources, the first being the Intel site its self, the second being Live Chat with an Intel employee.
I don't actually see your point..... care to provide any links to ACTUAL evidence of your claims... or just spread FUD???
His temps are fine and within normal operating range of the stock cooler... voltage, THEN finally heat, degrades a chip.
