Monitor Cpu Temperature

Overheating will cause instability, definitely shorten the life of a PC and cause massive performance issues. A good recommended rule to follow is to keep the temperature (while under full load) around 20c or lower below the maximum temperature the manufacturer has rated your processor at.

Core Temp is a great small footprint program to monitor CPU temperature. It has many very useful options that could very possibly save or at least lengthen a PC's life.

How on earth do you keep a CPU at 20c under full load??

 

My i7 runs quite happy at stock at around 45-47c.

 

O/C'd to 3.9ghz full fans, I can hit 85-90c.

 

Reading comprehension pwns you. :lol:
