    critical temperature for Core 2 Duo Processor E6550




      What is the critical temperature for Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6550 that the Computer BIOS should shut down the machine?

        • 1. Re: critical temperature for Core 2 Duo Processor E6550

          The maximum recommended temperature for this processor is 72 degrees Celsius.

          But the system will shut down when the processor reached around 90 - 100 degrees Celsius
