Intel documentation says it's 100C for all non-extreme processors, be it dual cores or quads.
And in the TH table he's mentioning QX9650 (which is the extreme variant), and you probably have the Q9650, which fits with the chip on the line above the QX9650 from that table.
Hi, thank you very much. Can you tell me the difference between TjMax and "safe operating core temperatures"? I understand that TjMax is where Intel TM will shut down the CPU, but has Intel ever posted documentation stating a safe operating temperature for the CPU's "Core temp". I do have a Q9650 and a Q6600 G0. Thanks
Edit: The reason I ask this is because another person is telling me that 80-90C is an acceptable operating "Core Temperature" for Q6600 and Q9650 chips. If that is wrong I would like a link so I can show him. If I ask this in the wrong place I am sorry and you can move it. Thanks tons!
