I-7 920 Temp?
 
What is a normal temp for a I-7 920?

I'm getting about 37 Celsius on idle. i was wondering if that is a normal temp.

Thanks!

It is dependent on the ambient temperature too and the relative humidity.

For me the min is around 30C with a max of 65C and a variation of 5-10C.

Nope its still stock. The max temperature I got was from running Prime95 for 4+ hours on a Sunday afternoon when the room temperature was around 90F (32C).

I am giving myself a month to observe my system before I overclock the memory and the cpu on my system.

My threshold for overclocking is 75C under full load.

The only time i saw my surface temp goto 75c was when i overclocked to 4.2 and ran Prime. At that point my cores were touching 90c so i backed off.

At 3.6Ghz it idle's at 26c average and loads at 60c with prime after a few hours. Under normal use like gaming and video encoding its usually around 40c. Thats with the TRUE120 HSF installed.

I have seen some folk running there i7 920's at 4.0Ghz with similar temps as i get at 3.6Ghz.

About 40C idle at 4.0ghz here, 70's under full load.

according to intel 80c is safe .It can go up to 100c before it is consider unsafe.so if you run it in the mid 70's c you will be fine .It not like a core2 duo.

Don't look at my OC like that, bob. It makes everyone uncomfortable.

That's pretty much the same as mine. Are you using the Thermalright for cooling?
