Huh? I can't seem to find the TjMax figure anywhere? Even in the documentation?

Although, for what it's worth, I seem to recall reading some time ago that the new chips would contain their TjMax value in an on-chip address that could be accessed by any temp monitoring program, making the issue largely moot.

Thermal Specification: The thermal specification shown is the maximum case temperature at the maximum Thermal Design Power (TDP) value for that processor. It is measured at the geometric center on the topside of the processor integrated heat spreader. For processors without integrated heat spreaders such as mobile processors, the thermal specification is referred to as the junction temperature (Tj). The maximum junction temperature is defined by an activation of the processor Intel® Thermal Monitor. The Intel Thermal Monitor’s automatic mode is used to indicate that the maximum TJ has been reached.


67.9°C

That's a design temperature rating, not TjMax, as defined with the previous generation of chips, where the DTS reports provided an offset, rather than a concrete value. My own 920's been breaking 80 routinely without any throttling of any kind.

I thought they were one of the same, I apologize.

As stated, that's not TJmax, which is core temperature related. That's the target temp on the outside surface of the heatspreader at max TDP wattage.

that is correct but with this number you can calculate all others and it is the thermal center of the top of the ihs which you can't measure when it's running hence the only number they give now because core max temps can vary
