Looks like the design spec is 100C. This spec correlates with those who haven't seen core shut-down until >98C. For others, such as myself, I've repeatedly seen shutdowns at 69C. At first my CPU temps will run up to mid-upper 70's when viewing HD at full screen. As a test, when I open another HD at full screen then temp goes as high 86C and I start seeing core shutdown. CPU's are maxed-out. Temps finally come down to 69C and level off while CPU's continue to be maxed-out and I continue to have core shut-down. When I close one of the videos, my temp may drop some more and CPU usage drops to 1/2 or less and I have no more core-shutdown. I've used two different temp monitoring programs so I don't think I'm getting incorrect temps being reported.
