4.3 Socket Maximum Temperature
The power dissipated within the socket is a function of the current at the pin level and
the effective pin resistance. To ensure socket long term reliability, Intel defines socket
maximum temperature using a via on the underside of the motherboard. Exceeding the
temperature guidance may result in socket body deformation, or increases in thermal
and electrical resistance which can cause a thermal runaway and eventual electrical
failure. The guidance for socket maximum temperature is listed below:
• Via temperature under socket < 96 °C
So am i to understand that roughly anything under 90c they are saying is a safe temp?
