    Way to go Intel!!!!

    I was cleaning the dust out of my computer today & afterwards my water pump took a crap...it's been on it's last leg for awhile now. I noticed it because the motherboard fan I have plugged into the CPU fan header was cranking super high rpm. I checked the water line down stream of the CPU water block & it was really hot. When I opened my hardware monitor I discovered the CPU was running @ 91*C(364*F).

    I've gotten GPU's(graphics board chips) up to 80ish before but never anywhere close to how hot this chip was running. It probably ran at that temp for 10-15 min & still works perfect after I installed my backup pump...all I can say is Intel makes one helluva product.

    Penryn Quadcore Q9550 OC'd to 3.3Ghz @ 1.325V

    91C=195.8 degree Fahrenheit
    I've seen 100C on some of my processors while playing around overclocking. I have watercooling as well. Running an E8600 Wolfdale, 3.4Ghz dual core.

    These Cpu's can actually handle much more heat than you would imagine. Gpu's can actually handle more heat.

    That's pretty cool, I never knew that.
    How come they don't have a Phoenix or Chandler series chip?? They had a Prescott.

    I think it's like "rivers, streams, and other natural stuff" in Oregon.

    Oops, that's what I meant...I accidentally converted to kelvin.

    I know there are some who believe that doing a "burn-in" on a CPU will provide more stability at higher clock speeds. I've only been able to get this one to about 4Ghz, but the temps were approaching 65C under heavy load, so I never left it there too long. Maybe I should try it again at a lower voltage now that I cooked it good to see if this theory holds water.
