    i7 920 cpu tempeature

    i7er

      hi all,

       

      i bought i7 920 recently, but i found the cpu tempeature is around 50 (without running any app), 60 degree when convert video(cpu utilization around 50 %)

       

      the Motherboard is still around 48 - 50 degree. is the cpu tempeature too hot?

       

      pls kindly advice.

       

      thx

          Hi,

           

          Is teh computer crashing, getting BSOD system freezes, stability issues?

          becasue if you are not then the temperature is fine. The CPU will soon start throttling and the shut down automatically when it gets too hot. I know what the official thermal spec say about the CPUs, but even then i have had a e6600 at 88 degrees and it still hadn't shutdown and had only just started throttling. The official max temp was 71.

          hope this helps

              Yep it is hotter than the core 2 duos and quad because it needs more power..130w instead of teh 95w the q9550 needs or the 65w a e6600 needs

                  actually , i am a newbie , but just wanna share my experience......

                   

                  if you cooler master v10, should not be like that. no overclock, right?

                  what does your cpu voltage setting?
