    Hello people!
    First, please tell me what is Tj. Max (not the clothing store! :p)
    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.

    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.
