    Intel Core i7-950, very high temperature.




      I just bought an i7-950, 3,06GHz. I installed the default fan, with default thermal grease. no overcloaking.


      running idle :

      CPU 37°C


      running 3Dsmax 2011 full render after only 5 mins :

      CPU 95°C


      SPECS :

      Motherboard Sabertooth X58

      2x4Go Vengeance CORSAIR DDR3 1666MHz

      Nvidia GTX260

      CORSAIR GS700


      Is this normal ? Can I keep running with such high temperatures ?

      Sorry for my poor english.
