    phenom II x4 920, on a xigmatek s1283 red scorpion
    min 27C max 49C after 5 minutes.

    ambient room temp is 21.2C (have a fancy alarm clock)

    not bad for a cooler that's cable tied on and not making proper contact

    i5 6600k stayed on 49C with the occasional flash of 50C. NZXT Kraken cooling it in NZXT H440 case, everything stock

    Prime didnt even really trigger my CPU fans to spin up after 5 mins as I set the threshold over 65

    Re: QOTW: How hot does your CPU run?

    i5 4570 here easily hitting 100C at which point it throttles and so goes no higher. Max average 99.25C as a couple of the cores don't quite reach 100C before the others trigger the throttling. Do I win something?

    Stock cooling in a small form factor case which hasn't been cleaned in 2.5 years since I put it together. Truth be told, I don't notice any problems. In years gone by a computer would switch off when it started overheating and I would have to clean the dust out. Now on the rare occasion I push it (handbrake possibly, can't think of much else that would do it) it scales down the clocks to something it can manage and I don't have to care.

    Makes me wonder - what's the worst cooling you could get away with for a modern CPU if you didn't care about it throttling at all? Presumably with no cooler at all it couldn't keep running - it can't throttle enough for that. Would be a brave soul that tries to test it but I have a feeling it would be surprisingly difficult to kill a modern CPU...

    Re: QOTW: How hot does your CPU run?

    That was interesting, runs several degrees hotter than it does when using other programs that fully load all cores (such as video editing)



    Edit: was starting to throttle though, was watching the clock speed on random cores drop here and there for fractions of a second... again that doesn't happen for video encoding

    That's because running prime numbers really stresses the CPU's instructions etc. over aapps/games that's why it's used for overclocking stability testing as games/apps do not push your CPU so hard.

    Re: QOTW: How hot does your CPU run?

    Cooler: Corsair H100i GTX in Push-Pull Configuration
    CPU: i7-6700k OC'd to 4.7Ghz from the stock 4Ghz
    Ambient Room Temp at the moment is: 17c with my window open, usually around the 20's
    Idle Temp: 22-24C
    Load Temp reached: 80C

    Fans were sitting at around 2000RPM as thats as loud as I can stand them, noise wise.
    Case: NZXT Phantom Full Tower with the stock NZXT intake/exhaust fans - one 140mm front intake, two side 120mm's and one large 200mm side intake fan.

    Standard rear 120mm Exhaust fan - meaning the radiator is pushing out most of the heat.
