    Default Is it dangerous for 24/7?

    Hello, Im trying some different configurations with my GA-EP45-DS3L and a C2D E8400.

    Now Ive got rock solid (prime95 couple of hours) my system with FSB 475*8,5, and the volts are 1,32NB, 1,3VTT and 1,3CPU Vcore.

    I have a very good airflow inside my case and my tems right now are 45 CPU and Mainboard 41 full load with prime.

    I also istalled some cooper heatsinks on my voltage regulators for keeping them colder.

    Am I taking any serius risk leaving all like that for 24/7?

    Thx ^^

    The voltages are fine, you can try whether you go lower on the NB though.

    What are you using to monitor CPU temperature? 41C is too low to be true with air cooling, unless you use something revolutionary. Download Coretemp and check your CPU temp with that.

    No,no, My CPU runs around 45 full load with prime95, and everest says that my system temp is around 41 (NB temp?)

    What Im asking is if 475 FSB is too much for my mobo? Can I go to 500 FSB safe?

    Thanks again ^^

    FSB is safe as high as it goes, high voltages and high temperatures is what can be dangerous, not high FSBs though.

    And 45 C cannot be right unless you have 10 or less in your room. Maybe you're using an old Everst version, download Coretemp to check your real temperature.

    The E8400 I have/had ran cool also, staying in the 40's at 4Ghz. I have ~19C room temp. They run cool.

    Oh and that system temp sensor that shows in everest and ET6 is near the SB from what I've seen, deff not the NB temps

    I agree with Nickel020, 45C sounds like the CPU case temperature, not the core temp. Could you please double check this?

    Also, Prime95 is not the most severe stress test. Try LinX, Intel Burn Test, OCCT, etc. that are based on the Intel Linpack benchmark.

    Guys Im using a Xigmatek HDT1823 with 3 120mm fans and one 140mm airflowing air inside my case.

    Im pretty sure that my Cpu is running at 45-47 full stress with prime95/orthos and 1,30Vcore.

    But it doesnt matter at all, I just need to know if my GA-EP45-DS3L can manage to do 500FSB and if keeping my NB on 1,32V and the VTT on 1,30 is safe enough.
