Default Re: Noob Q About How To Tell If CPUS Damaged?

Possible, but honestly it's probably okay. There is a reason why it shuts down when it does. This is a safety precaution to keep it from being damaged. If it were going to be damaged at that temp, they would probably lower the threshold.

Heat usually isn't the one to damage a processor, it's going wild with the voltages that can cause it to break. By wild I don't mean a slight bump, but more like a huge increase say by .5V or something.
