I've installed a new Zalman CNPS7000C-AlCu on my cpu. I was wondering what the maximum temperature is that the processor is supposed to operate under.
I found this page. It lists 55° C - 72°C.
How should I read that? That is different per individual processor? Or is this a temperature range? And what if it runs at a higher temperature? Will the lifespan be reduced a lot?
In short: I'm not sure how to interprent this data. Could someone explain?
