    LinX (IBT)


      Dear Intel Community,


      I was wondering if running LinX for 24+ hours could harm (ie cause CPU degradation) the CPU? So far I have used Linx to test my OC settings and I have had no problems at all but I have recently been told that running LinX for an extended period can cause CPU degradation indeed.


      My system specs are as follows:


      i7 2600K @ 4.5GHz, 1.35V (1.332V load, 1.344V idle), max core temp after 30hrs of LinX: 65C (Noctua NH-D14 cooler with 2 UK2000s)

      Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3

      8GB of RAM - 1600MHz HyperX Grey 1.5V (~1.548V)


      All your answers are greatly appreciated.
