What is the hottest one can safely run a 4670K?

I thought the Haswell TJ Max was 100c, I know Ivys 105c.

My stock intel heatsink was defective. When I got the temp monitoring software installed I got a warning saying my CPU was at 104 C. I pooped myself slightly, installed the heatsink from my last build and it's been running fine since. Even OC'd to 4.5 GHz.

72.72c.

That's using the motherboard reading that your fans are calibrated to respond to.
TJmax is usually much higher and will only be hit during extreme performance spikes, making it more or less irrelevant.

around 80c while gaming, mine usually stays 65-70c


What cooling method are you using?
And what is the best FREE benchmark/stress test software I can use?

I have a 4670k and an h80i and I'm looking to OC.


I use Open Hardware Monitor to track temps and Prime95 to torture testing.

OHM is kind of overkill if you just want to see your CPU temps in real time, I use it more for getting max readings while gaming.

Mine never goes above 68 on a CoolerMaster T4, even during long gaming sessions. Haven't OC'd yet, though.

I understand thats the temperature of the surface of the CPU? Where as TJ Max is the cores?

That is correct. Hence why you use the motherboard sensor for tcase max.
