    danger of overheating an i7-3770T processor




      I run a Intel Core i7-3770T in an Impactics Mini-ITX case with passive cooling. When I run the processor in this case more than 4 hours (room temperature 25°Celsius) the processor temperature reaches 63°Celsius (max. TCase 69.8°Celsius). In the Specifications Intel mentions the "Thermal-Monitoring-Technology". Does this Technology protect the i7-3770T protect from Overheating?


      Or it is better to use a processor with a less max. TDP.


      Further: Could it be possible, that the Intel HD Graphics get's erroneous if an i7-3770T works around 60-63°Celsius? After 4 hours the colours gets bad and unstable.


      Kind regards
