You know.....I think you people have been on these forums so long you actually have become computers yourselves. You've lost your senses, a good guess, hunches......all I wanted was a minimum and a maximum. Like, regardless of the system you have if you see THIS temp, shut it down. If you are struggling with the answer to this simple question, I seriously think you need to unplug and get laid.
I love these forums and the help I have received, don't mean to say this in a bad way at all but, re-read your posts and you'll see for yourselves I am right.
Thank you for taking the time and trying to help, got my answer at a different forum. Take care.
I'd be very leery of a forum that gave me an answer without knowing the processor I have.
We are a very technical bunch here. We don't give guesses. That's for amateurs and people who aren't informed.
There is no minimum temp unless you're playing with nitrogen. See, that's something we would need to know.
If you want a generalized maximum, then use 60°C. Since no one knows your processor, and frankly, I think it's absolutely ridiculous you won't provide that simple answer, then that's the safest answer I'm willing to give. That, however, misinforms you and anyone else who would read this thread in the future. You may decide at some future date to overclock your machine. Do you REALLY want a guesstimate about that highest temp now? Because if you go off of 60°C, you won't be overclocking very far. If someone told you 100°C on another forum, your CPU isn't going to make it very long, if at all.
So stop being so ambiguous about what processor you have. It's a more simple question than what your original question is and yet, you get all butt hurt over people not wanting to answer YOUR question. For the length of time you've been a member here, you SHOULD know better than to use generalized estimates when it comes to computer components.
