As long as you are under 70 you're ok.

your i7 920 is only running at 3.9GHz and it's not under any load that I can see. It looks like it's running Hot to me.

Download LinX and let it run for 20 minutes with RealTemp or HWMonitor (perferred) also running. If your temps hit 80C stop the test. Take a screenshot around the 19 minute mark and post it.

LinX - http://www.youwatched.com/datajay/linx(0.64).7z
HWMonitor - HWMonitor

And you should read thru this

ok i used prime 95 already had that on the computer these are the temps after 1 hour they are a little bit higher than i would like but since i only use the computer for playing games watching movies and music and while in games very rarely brakes 60c i am not to bothered . room temp is 27.7c . i have read that guide when i oc it i pretty much left everything at stock voltage until it became unstable then just changed what i had to tried to leave everything as close to stock voltage as possible.



sorry to small

Your screenshot is to big, I can barely make out the numbers. However your system is running way to hot especially considering you have Intel Speedstep and the Cx-Functions enabled. You've mentioned a Radiator, what are you using to cool your system? Regardless, it's only working as well as the stock heatsink or maybe marginally better. Reduce your cpu speed until your idle temps are in the high 30's or low 40's. Invest in a real cooling solution or your system will have a very reduced life expectancy.

I'm just looking at the 1st picture you posted. It says your at .7% load and the minimun temperature acheived on core#0 is 46C and core#2 is at 47C. I can't see your screenshot of Prime95 to use it as a reference. And you should try using LinX. From what I see your running hot, especially considering that your using Speedstep and the Cx-Functions. Your system is running hotter than my air-cooled system at 4.2GHz, from the picture you provided.
