Max Load On Intel i7 920 ?
 
Hello as i recently fixed the mobo problem i would like to start thinking about oc
The i7 is on a Corsair h50 water cooler but what should i push the cpu upto ?
In C* please or F i dont mind (Before it will cause long term damage) :thumb:

Update:
Thanks everyone im going to stay around the 65-70 mark.
As im on a x58 Sli LE mobo i have been looking and found this...
EVGA X58 Overclocking Guide
He gets 4.5Ghz in the end on air :rofl:
So does this mean i could still get this being on water ?

It will be fine in the 60's.. 70's is really warm for 24/7 use.

Oh yeah celcius

Thanks.
So the corsair h50 seems to have paste allready on it.
This will mean i dont need to put paste intel provides right ? and just plop the h50 straight onto the cpu.

Edit: This is my first every build so im kinda new to this thing.

I think anything under 80c is fine.jmo

Yes, as long as your load temps are under 80 it's fine. But for 24/7 use, I'd be more confortable with 70C and less.

90C is hot. 95C is too hot. 100C will trip the thermal protection. You can't get the CPU up to a temperature that will harm it, so don't worry about that. You should just try and keep it below 90C to avoid having temperature spikes that end up triggering the thermal throttling which will slow down the CPU and reduce performance.

Not according to my CPU.

Most people try to keep their linx load under 90C and "normal" max under 85C

I would follow shamsi's guide on the evga forums it is a better guide. I think it was jacobs guide that had way too high voltages but I could be wrong since I read that on a forum. With the h50 even with two good 120mm it is difficult to get past 4.0 with the small surface area and low amount of fluid. Also once the fluid gets warm it cant get cooler ( forget what thats called) Most don't want to pass 75 on P95.
