    Rampge III extreme/i7-950 How hot is too hot?

    Quick question on temps for the 950. Im reading around 69-70 degrees is pretty much the peak of what intel suggest for this chip. mine pushes up to around 71-72 mark currently overclocked to 3.7Ghz (23 x 161) This is when under load/gaming. The cores themselves hitting 99-100 degrees. On a scale of 1 to firepit. How un/healthy is this going to be. Only recently upped from a 3.3Ghz clock and am noticing the decent heat increase.

    100 degrees is to high for daily use, 65 to 75 under stress and 50 during gaming would be better temps to shot for

    So i reseated the heatsink with arctic silver 5 and ive changed location of a couple case fans. Now reading 47 degrees at idle. 63 degrees under load, Cores are peaking at 70-73 degrees. A bit more acceptable i hope. PC still runs reliably in game etc at these temps.
