    So I am curious as to what the running temps of a computer should be. I have a Q6600 overclocked to 3.2GHz. I have the Tuniq Tower 120 below half for its fan speed. I would like to know safe operating ranges for my computer so I don't cause damage to it. Here is where it is as it stands right now.

    your temp is alright. if in the 60's or higher then start worrying.

    So I set my comp back to default because when I ran the prime95 Blend test my computer crashed less than 2 minutes into it....Not sure if I was supposed to run that test or not. I set my overclock back to default which is 2.4GHz for my processor. I ran Prime95 again, this time on In-place large FFTs. Supposed to cause maximum heat, power consumption and some RAM. My Build is this. Keep in mind I only ran the Prime95 test for 10 minutes.

    It seems to me I should be able to overclock and keep cooler temps that what I am getting.

    See my reply in your thread here. If your overclock isn't stable then it will indeed crash pretty quickly running something like Prime95 (IIRC, blend test is a mix of CPU/RAM). Around 50 degrees on a stress test with Prime95 for your default clock is fine, probably means you're running normally at 35-40 degrees. Your cooler should be sufficient and I'm presuming you have a reasonably standard airflow going through your case. You don't really want to be getting any hotter than 65 on a stress test when you're overclocked.

    How far were you overclocking? From my limited reading, it seems you should be able to get to 3GHz with a small increase in voltage and still keep things stable.

    Might want to take a look at this and do some general reading around.

    3.2GHz was where I was at.

    Have you overclocked properly before?

    Yeah. This worked for the longest time. Just now about 2 years later this happens.

    Sorry, I see you mentioned your original overclock in the OP. Did you do any stress testing initially when you first built the PC to test stability at higher temperatures/strain?

    I'm not entirely sure what the problem is - your PC is running at safe temperatures at standard clock speed, your overclock was running fine (?) until you put it through some actual testing and found it overheats/crashes? What are you trying to achieve?

    I mean technically processors can operate up to 100+ degrees but that's obviously not a safe operating temperature for any sort of daily use.
