    I over-clocked my CPU (E8400) to 4.0GHz today and OC'ed my GPU a bit too.

    While running the Win 7 assesment the load was 100% and my core temps went a tad over 100 degrees F.

    Is that too hot?
    The cores usually run around 72 degrees F when idling or light loads.

    Immediately after the assesment test the temps dropped right back down. As in like a few seconds immediate.

    Man, I like seeing the 7's in the Win7 Performance screen.
    I just don't get the 5.9 disk score...it is a WD VelociRaptor 300. Any thoughts?

    That is like 47°C, no where near dangerous or even bad.

    And I don't think you will get much over 6.0 on the disk bench without an SSD or RAID0.

    OK, I guess that's cool (literally...). Thanks for the input.

    What would you recommend for a SSD by the way?

    At this point, I wouldn't. Give them another year to mature and come down in price, then start looking at them. They are a nice luxury, but the money can go better spent elsewhere in most rigs.

    When an E8400 hits this temp, then it's time to worry.

    I was testing the thermal throttling temperature by turning the heatsink fan off. Yep, it throttles at 100C just like Intel says. :D

    Still running Prime95 stable for 3 hours so I guess it's not that bad.
     
    BlackMagic and hat say thanks.
