10 minute under stress
 


Well those temperatures are safe considering this was a stress test, what program did you use use for the test?
I would be concerned if those we're the temperatures during gaming.

AIDA64 Extreme
 


That's not the most intensive stress tester, I'd consider anything over 85c hot when testing with that. You should try re-applying thermal paste, clean out any dust in your CPU fan to make sure it runs best.

sinatak,

Concerning AIDA64, please be more specific.

AIDA64 has 15 possible stability tests involving the processor, any of which, selected either individually or in combinations, will produce different Core temperatures due to workloads that range from less than 70% to more than 115%:

(1) CPU - (<70% workload, lowest Core temperatures)
(2) FPU - (>115% workload, highest Core temperatures)
(3) Cache
(4) RAM
(5) CPU, FPU (~100% workload, valid Core temperatures)
(6) CPU, Cache
(7) CPU, RAM
(8) FPU, Cache
(9) FPU, RAM
(10) Cache, RAM
(11) CPU, FPU, Cache
(12) CPU, FPU, RAM
(13) CPU, Cache, RAM
(14) FPU, Cache, RAM
(15) CPU, FPU, Cache, RAM

That's a lot of variables.

Q: Exactly what did you run?

Here's the nominal operating range for Core temperature:

Core temperatures above 85°C are not recommended.

Core temperatures below 80°C are ideal.

Core temperatures increase and decrease with ambient (room) temperature.

Q: What was your ambient temperature during testing? Standard or "normal" is 22°C or 72°F.
