maximum recommended temperature for i7 920CPU during overclocking

i have a Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.7GHz, socket 1366

i am starting to tweak the overclocking settings, have also installed a Corsair water cooler.

just need to know what temperature the cpu should not go above? so i can wind the oc back if it gets too close.

normal windows/office programs ok, its just when in game there is lots going on

hope someone can help

Hello treasure108,

I see that you are inquiring about the maximum temperature that your processor can go up to when overclocking.

First Intel(R) does not offer any support for this practice and please note that overclocking will shorten the lifespan of the processor.

Regarding your inquire, your processor should not exceed its thermal specification of 67.9°C.

Regards.
