My System Specs


If your temps are below 100C, you're fine. If they're above 100C, you're still fine, but your CPU will throttle. It is impossible to damage a modern Intel CPU by loading it and causing its temperature rise too much, because its thermal protection mechanisms will kick in and shut the chip off if it gets to dangerous levels.

gingerbee, the maximum Tcase rating is absolutely worthless, unless you feel like milling a channel into your heatspreader and inserting a thermocouple.
