    How does higher temperatures than given influences MTBF/lifetime of a Xean 3500 CPU ?

      Hi, We are currently developing a new platform using an Intel Xeon CPU. Our long time temperature measurements shows an average surface temprature of ~81° Celcius. Accourding the corresponding documentation the given MTBF is valid for a surface temprature of 67.5°C. My question now is how these 15°-20° C avarage higher temperature influences the MTBF and/or lifetime of the CPU. with regards, Dierk
