How hot?

Postby bob » 03/19/12, 8:33 pm

How hot can I let my cpu get? It generally runs in the area of 40 Celsius (That's about 90 f. to you English speaking peoples). But that cpu fan is louder than hell.... (All the other fans in the system are whisper quiet--I replaced the cpu fan, same thing... It must be how it's up against the fins of the heat sink.) To what temp can I safely slow it. Right now the sys is still all at defaults. When I shut it off the temp goes up quick--I've never let it get past 115 f. Can I go higher or what? Can't seem to find an online answer. (At this point, I'm wishing I had gotten the water cooling...)
