    A poll with a twist - what has been your HOTTEST STABLE temp?

    Ok read then vote.

    What temperature has been the hottest you have had a CPU run at for 24 hours+ under load? The system must have been stable for the 24 hours, and running under full load.

    Note: OMG MY CPU HIT 80C WEHN I FITTETD TEH HEATSKINK WRONG!!1one does not count.

    My personal highest is 62C for an XP1700 Tbred @ XP2100. The other cpu in the system was at about 60C.

    • CPU Type:

    • VCore:

    • Max Temp:

    • Cooling:

    • Situation: What program were you running, Summer or Winter, re-seated HS?

    • CPU dead or alive:

    ugg, id say like 58c wiht my 2800+ @ 2.36ghz with 1.55v, on my kingwin 80mm fan hsf, it was while folding, and it was rock stable. that rig folded for like weeks straight during that WW4 folding war.

    i used to run my athlon xp 2800+ at around 68C load. it has a chipped die so it doesn't make proper contact with the heatsink. the fact that i was using white goop and a speeze heatsink didn't help much either.

    Choosing between two evils, I might pick the one I've never tried before.
    My temps hit 65c long before I went to watercoolin. Felt like a toaster with a fan.
    I find that most people are like Slinkies.. They are not really good for anything, but can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs. :P

    I've seen the low to mid 50s, but corrected that problem, now only my 9800XT sees an occasional 51C and my other temps are in the low to mid 40s.

    Pally XP2000 + Summer + 30C room + stock heatsink = 71C for ages

    Folding of course

    ... and then Asus COP kicked in, so I turned it off.

    I've run my XP-M at 2.4GHz and seen it fold stably at 70C+. I think that's impressive.

    Trolling is bad.

    *EDIT* Total specs:

    XP-M 2500+
    Thermalright SK6+ with Panaflo 80L, the heat of summer.
    Temp found on diode through running Folding.
