I'm running Prime95 blend test and it's doing a loada Lucas-Lehmer things at various sizes. Guessing it's doing the right thing? How long does it run for, or is it infinite?
Anyway, it's been running for over a hour and my CPU temp's gone up to 49C and dropped back to 48C, depending on the exact iteration. This seems high to me - isn't 50C the max for a Venice core? What'll happen if it reaches 50C?
50 it blows up lol nah. i have a x2 4200 with zalman and p180 case. i oced only 100mhz so its at 2.3ghz (1.365 v) and my temps are when running prime 95 and super pi 47-48c. so i guess thats ok? but some people say single cores should be cooler then dual. as for prime 95 it runs 24/7 i believe unless u specify how long for it to run
