    What it the maximum core temperature for the Intel Core i3-2130?



      I have Intel Core i3-2130 processor with box cooler, installed on Intel Desktop Board DH77DF.

      And I found that during stress test CPU Core temperature raised to 80 degrees of Celsius (176 degrees Fahrenheit) in 10 minutes.

      I used "CPU Stress Test" in Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. I ran stress tests with default BIOS settings.

      So, I'm wondering if this temperature is normal for this processor or not?

      I didn't find "Maximum Core Temperature" in the specification, only "Tcase" which is 69.1 C.

      I will really appreciate all you thoughts and ideas!
