from my understanding the new version of prime95 is actually optimised for newer intel cpu's so don't know where you heard it's not good for intel cpu's,
haven't used the new version myself and usually got temps around the 70c with a half decent aftermarket cooler when under 100% load just like you get with the older version so must admit that 90c temp surprised me compared to the older version of prime95.
did it stop climbing then or did you stop it because it got so high? be interest to see what temps you get with intel burn test compared to prime95 too.
think i'm going to have to download both the older version and newer version of prime and run my own tests now just to satisfy my own curiosity after seeing your results.
well for me using linux and a custom water cooling loop there wasn't any noticeable temp difference between 26.6 and 28.5 versions of prime95. both held steady around the 60/61c mark.
ran both for 20 minutes each.
