    Intel i7 - 950 Processor Temperature Check !


      I have just build up my new rig from Core2Duo with i7-950. The Idle temperature of 950 for is around 43 - 44 c and on priming it at full load using Prime 5 it crosses 81 C in 2 minutes. Is it normal for the processor. What is the Maximum temperature this processor can handle. Meanwhile I am using the Stock Cooler only. Core2Duo with Stock cooling was better even at full load for so many hours it never crossed 60 C.
