The max full load as actually pretty high. I know that on my i7 it was pretty crazy installing the Indigo Extreme, my CPU ran around 100 for a few minutes straight according to 3 different programs. I almost had a heart attack and while I would prefer not to do this again, nothing went wrong. The max I would really bench at is around 85. Just make sure that it doesn't stay over 70 all the time. _________________ CPU: i7 930 @ 4.4GHz w/ Megahalems

Cool - I've done a bit more research and 72c is the max load temp the stock cooler can support. TJ max is still the cut-off, so I'm well clear of that at least!
I'm going to reapply my TIM and reseat my Megahalems at the weekend. I wasnt to check that the TIM actually spread properly.
Also grabbing a Gelid for my 470, so the ambient temps should come down a fraction too (470 is an excellent case heater with the stock cooler!) _________________ CPU: i7 860 @ 3.8ghz (Corsair H100/Noiseblocker M12-P)

Some boards are also a b*tch to work with. I just gave my old CPU to a friend who now tries to get it back to where I always used it. He has the same board as me but different RAM and is struggling to achieve some sort of stability, especially if you want to use all the features the platform offers. _________________ Intel i7 2600k | MSI Z77 GD45 Gaming | 16GB G.Skill DDR3-2400 | Gigabyte GTX 670 | Creative SoundBlaster ZXR
