    Exclamation What is Tj Max? And why are my temps fluctuating so much?

    Hello people!
    First, please tell me what is Tj. Max (not the clothing store! )
    Second, the temperature in Core Temp 0.99.8 is fluctuating too much. The temperature went from 50 C to 71(never went above 64 before), then returned to 60 and again touched 71 2 times. All this happened pretty fast, within a minute the temperature fell from 71 to 60 and went to 71 in 2 more minutes.
    The Tj Max in core temp is shown as 70, and when temperature crossed it, the core temp icon in taskbar began to blink. I guess this was some kind of warning.
    The running programs at that time were:
    Google Chrome(5-6tabs)
    Steam, Steam Backup
    GTalk
    MTS
    Skype
    Core Temp
    + Other background processes

    I closed almost all the programs immediately and temperature came down to 45-50, but I am a bit worried.

    Tj max stands for Tjunction Max, Tjunction is another word for core temps. All Intel Core processors have a Tj max with values that vary greatly, notebook processor Tj max values are known as they are provided from Intel. Desktop processors on the other hand are not documented and we can do nothing but guess.

    Tj max is the maximum allowable temp for a processor's internal cores, if you reach Tj max the processor's THERMTRIP# signal will activate shutdown to prevent damage to the processor.
    Found it from here.
    Core i5 750, biostar h55 A+ (X16+X4), 4gb 1333 ddr3, corsair vx450, cm elite 335,Asus EAH 5750 FORMULA , samsung 2033 sw plus, wd green 1tb , wd 1tb my book ,Seagate freeagent ext hdd 1tb , hp dvd writer,Apc 650 va, logitech z313 , Micromax Funbook , Klipsch image S3 (IEM).

    check your cpu cooling solution & TIM.if overclocking revert back to stock speed.according to some online sources TJMax value is set different for different processors & usually 98-100C.when core temp reaches this TJMax thermal throttling start taking place.thermal shutdown temp is usually TJMax+25C.at this temp cpu shuts down.

    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
