    Just got a i7 3820 and was wondering what are the safe operational temps for under load? I ask because i got it running at 4.3 Ghz and it caps out at 63C.

    Running a H80 coolers btw.

    Entirely reasonable. I'd say that 75C is about as high as I'd let it get for 24/7 operation. Low 60s is great :toast:

    Considering how cheap it is, I cannot help but tell people. $25 to cover death from overclocking is pretty cheap!


    Just note it will only cover you for a single replacement for one chip, but you can buy multiple warranties for multiple chips.
