100 Celsius and you shall have melted silicon. But for safety and common sense, don't hit above 80 Celsius.

Thanks man. Do you have an idea what should be the temp of the cpu when it's on the idle with no overclock at all ? I hit around 42-45 and i was wondering if it alright.

I think you should be more worried about the temperature when it is on load.

But to answer your question, I don't know. It depends on what type of cooling you are using.

Is speedstep etc on? And what's the room temperature at?

I7's are a lot hotter than the core 2's (especially with hyperthreading turned on)

Taking into account how hot the room is, those are acceptable temps.

I'd look into getting a better cooler when you can, but your processor wont melt (for now :P). If you want to reduce temps by a bit, disable hyperthreading.

i7 is back to old p4 days, pretty sure the i7's are back on netburst architechture add in the fact the memory controller is built in now and you understand why they are so hot.

I personaly think Intel have done it on purpose, if this chip was perfect straight away, why would we upgrade? Something to think about.
