What is a hot temperature for a 2.4 GHz intel core 2 duo?

Anything over 50 degrees Celsius is too hot but shouldn't cause damage to your processor. Most CPUs run in the 40s unless you have an awesome fan/water cooling. If it hits 80 degrees, you will have problems.

My macbook pro runs at a steady 65 degrees celcius, when I start running Final Cut etc, it might get upto 80, but not worrying about it, never had problems before!

You know you're in the danger zone when your cpu slows down at a specific temperature.

I would recommend users download a program called PC Wizard 2010 it is a free download which tells you all you need to know about your computer including the temperature its running at. Cheers Adam.

Which 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo? There's the E6600, P8600, T7700, T8300, and plenty others.

I've got the Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe running at 2.4Ghz with the stock cooler on and that runs from 32(idle) to 50 (Full Load) so should be around that mark.

For mobile cpus keep it under 100c, my desktop runs at under 40 all the time, but unless I am running heavy apps, sticks under 25c
