Have attached a couple of pics of my temps.

Hello Steve

I have a BIG problem
I had an AMD processor and I sold it because Intel was supposed to be "better"

However, now I regret doing that

When I export a movie with Adobe Premiere CS5, the temperature goes up to the 90s

can you tell me, how long were you running your processor at 100C before it damaged?

Today I was exporting a movie in Premiere CS5 with Gaussian Blur set to 7, and man, for a minute or two the temperature of Core #3 reached 96C

With AMD it was always 65C max

What voltage should I have in order to run my processor at 3800 Mhz?

I think the problem was that my voltage was set to 1.35V, that's too high for 3800Mhz

I think I can run 3800Mhz at 1.30V, somebody please confirm that

Right now I exported a movie, and the temperature reached 89C

From what I read here, that might damage my CPU

Next CPU I will go with AMD for sure, I don't want to risk anything, but I can't overclock to 4.2Ghz with my Intel Core i7 875k

I can't even overclock to 4Ghz

My max speed I think will be 3600Mhz-3800Mhz

Please help me overclock properly, and help me understand the limits of my processor

Thanks :)
Hi gamingaccess,

First off it would be impossible to answer your questions as posed since you provide us no system specs.

Secondly.... I would HIGHLY suggest you read some info on overclocking to get an idea of what's involved. This would mean gaining an understanding of the BIOS and it's settings.

Here are two places to start....

- 3 Step Guide To Overclock Your Core i3, i5, or i7 – Updated! | Overclockers

Be warned..... Overclocking done wrong can and will destroy your system!!!

My two cents

As for your high temps.... again, we need system specs.
