    Default Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L and Intel Q6700 CPU Heat Questions.. Please Help

    Good Morning All.. For some strange reason i am having a very hard time understanding what the maximum heat limit is for the Intel Q6700 CPU. I am feeling kinda slow in the head at the moment. I run several different kinds of monitoring software Everest Ultimate Edition, HWMonitor, PC Wizard 2008, CPU-ID, EasyTune 6 from Gigabyte, Core Temp, RealTemp, Etc. And i get slightly different temp readings from most of those.

    Will one of you kind folks please tell me what the maximum temperature that this CPU can run at before it fries and dies? At the moment i have the Q6700 Over Clocked to 3100mhz and the CPU is 32c at idle. And the highest i have seen the CPU get is 61c under very heavy load, encoding movies Etc. I am just very curious what the TJMax or the max temp is for the Q6700. I went to the Intel site but i couldn't understand the chart. Some people talk about TJMax being 90c and others say TJmax doesn't even matter or it matters but that isn't what you go by, I am lost and have no idea. It seems like i remember reading something about 90c but i don't know for sure if that is the max. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day,
    Jason

    Are you using the latest versions of all of those? The only ones that should differ really is easytune (As it only shows CPU Temp), and Realtemp (As it needs configured)

    I would keep load temps under 80C and you will be fine, sounds like you have plenty of room still

    G0 stepping TjMax is 90C, also see here though for comments and testing provided by the author of realtemp

    Haha, thanks, I thought so too!

    Ya he is very knowledgeable for sure!! I think Intel has even asked him a few things in the past.

    Thanks for your kind words of support, it's great to hear when I am helpful to people!
