Hey Guys,

On Core Temp in the Overheat protection option there is something called TJmax. Now dont tell me its a clothing store cuz I will shoot myself if someone tells me that again. What does TJ Max stand for? Is it the Max Temp that the computer will reach and then do a shut down to protect the CPU? Or is it some feature that Core Temp has to protect your CPU? What happens when my computer reaches TJ Max?

Thx Guys!!!

Maximum junction temperature, referring to the temp of the actual semiconductor chip. Usually hotter than exterior temps such as near the surface where the HSF is mounted. It provides an upper bound for CPU temps.

A department store! A Clothing store only? Oh wait, this was a trick question wasn't it? Do I get a third guess?
