Todays processors will run at 50-80 no problem. Only becomes a problem if you overclock and the instability kicks in at the extremes.
Well I have a Core 2 duo 3Gz running at 3.6Ghz, so am not too inclined to see how how things can get. In truth, my gfx card went down the tubes a year or so ago, so I swapped in an old passive heatsink card, and it's not all that happy to run too hot in the gfx stuff. We're really talking games (which I don't bother with so much nowadays), but on a day like this, I wasn't chancing extended vid stuff.
Ambient room temp was 25.5o
C today, and is still at 25o
C. Strange, as it's 15C outside right now. Maybe best to standby and open the window for a bit.
