    CPU Package & Core Temp + Max Working Temp

    Hello all,

    I got 2 questions.

    1. My 5960x is OC-ed at 4.4ghz with 1.198v on the cores. I run Lightroom processing daily for 3-6 hours which will push all the cores to 80-100% on 4.4ghz. It runs about 60c-66c (I live in the tropics) when processing files. I was wondering if I could push it at a higher to run it close to the 70c threshold. Will this be ok? I read 5960x official max temps and it says 66.8c. Will a 24/7 temp of 70c ruin the processor?

    2. However HWiNFO shows CPU Package 73c max temp when the cores are 66c, it's a 7c difference. Should I be looking this temp instead for a safety gauge?

    Thanks again!
