So I installed Intel's Desktop Utilities to just check out cpu temperatures, and this is what I found... It's been VERY hot lately, and temperatures go very high in the room due to lack of air conditioning. I'm using a stock cooler for a core 2 quad q9300, no overclocking and cooling set to 'agressive' under BIOS. Here are the temperature readings, all marked in the green (safe) zone. It has given me no warning alerts.
Is this safe? Google was rather unhelpful.
I've never had shutdown issues, high detail games run well (with a gtx550). I'm using a case that origionally housed a p4, so it only has one additional cooling fan on the back panel. The computer isn't exactly helping the room temperature either, though it's nice in the winter
