I'm happy if they're sat mid 70's. I've got i7s that have been sat at that with months of stable uptime. They might complain long term, but you're not going to kill them off at 65, even with added vcore.

I realise mobile processors have higher limits, but my MBPs rock along in the 90's 24/7.
70*C on a desktop CPU is bad. On a mobile is ok.

Why is that bad? I know the max is 100C, but I was under the impression that as long as you weren't over 80C for long periods of time, you wouldn't really do any damage to the processor. But please correct me if this is wrong

I've always been told that 80 is not ok even bough the thermal is 100. 70 is the warning range.
