I was wondering if anyone knew what the default thermal throttle threshold for nexus 5 is.. Also how far is it safe to push?

its either 100 or 105C(I believe 105C). how safe? I've hit it hundreds of times, on purpose.

Are you sure its not in the 60s? Coz in stock my cpu benches were lower than nexus 4.once i flashed a custom kernel with 70degrees threshold my cpu bench went up there with the note 3..

ah, I misunderstood your question. I gave you the thermal shutdown temp. default is 65C, when it starts throttling.

right
and there's no trying, its fairly easy to hit the shutdown temp(especially with 90F+ temps in my area currently).

Harder if you keep thermal throttle on, which most people do

Silly northern hemisphere, it's Winter here in Australia My CPU temp goes down to 20C without artificial cooling lol.
