What is the maximum and safe temperature for fx-8350.

What is the maximum and safe temperature for fx-8350. I make OC, my processor is a 4.95Ghz currently. When I play a BF 4, it is less than 60c.

As noted 61C is the max user operating temp specified for the FX-8000 series CPUs. The forum should have shown several threads on the FX-8350 CPU max temps when you typed in your question as this is a common question.

And if the temperature is 70C then the CPU is going to die?

Re: What is the maximum and safe temperature for fx-8350.

A processor should do 2 things before it dies - throttle the clock speed and if that doesnt work simply shut off instantly for no apparent reason. Pushing it to the max temp *shouldn't* kill it unless it happens repeatedly.  My suggestion is if you're going 55 or higher then a cooling upgrade would be a good idea.
