first of all: i'm new to this forum and hope people from austria are as well welcome as my occasional bad spelling or my greenness for it is my first sandy bridge build
i recently assembled a new system, which is running stable @ 4,5ghz, and now have a few questions for i'd like to max it out. would be obliged, if you could help me or at least give me a few hints...
- what should be the max temps for i7 2600k without ruining the cpu in a long term? at the moment (see signature) my cpu temp ranges from 39-40°c with core temps between 55°c and (rarely peaking out at) 63°c (benchmarked with aida64). are these values actually ok? => i'm planning to stick to this system for approx. 2 years, if possible...(with minor changes of course).
- how do i "securely" find out what frequency my cpu is capable of?
- can you recommend a concrete benchmark procedure? how long should i run aida64, 3dmark vantage, prime, etc. for a reliable value? particularly in which sequence?
thanks in advance and greets from vienna!
