I am using an i7-4790k cpu, My question is it safe for the cpu to be more than 80C? I've been playing some games recently and my pc kept crashing after about 2 to 3 hours of gameplay (I can set the max to 100C)

On behalf of Tom's Moderator Team, welcome aboard!

Although Throttle temperature (Tj Max) for your i7 4790K is 100C, Core temperatures above 85°C are not recommended.

Here's the nominal operating range for Core temperature:

Core temperatures below 80°C are ideal.



Core temperatures increase and decrease with Ambient temperature.

Idle temperatures below 25°C are generally due to Ambient temperatures below 22°C.

Highest Core temperatures occur during stress tests or heavy rendering and transcoding, but are lower during less processor intensive applications. Gaming generally averages around 55°C, yet can range from 40 to 70°C, depending on how a particular game title allocates CPU / GPU workloads, as well as differences in overall cooling performance and ambient temperature.

Once again, welcome aboard!
