Don't talk rubbish, CPU's run right up till about 75 - 85 degrees or so before they get a bit wary. And none fry until well over 100 degrees.

Seriously, I've never said nothing before, but all you guys seem to touchy on the temps.

Oh, and the nature of CPU's, being a chip, it doesn't ware with time at these temps!

What use is 3200 RAM when he's obviously pushed the FSB above 800MHz (MEM 400MHz)? Get some 533MHz stuff in dual channel (or if it's DDR2, even better if you Mobo supports it) and run the thing like an Extreme Edition (1066MHz FSB).

If it were a 9xx Series and you did this, It basically would be, lol.

Good Going!

Oh it's a Prescot... Wow man 1337 Dude good luck with that one. And conrichi I'm not talking rubish, it's true. Your CPU (besides hot ass prescott) should stay under 65 celcius. Anything higher and your really killing the life span of the CPU.

My AMD processor (3500+ Winchester) on full load gets to around 55 degrees C... pretty high for an AMD, but it seems to be working fine.

I may need to get more cooling... and better heatsink/fan, and I'm not overclocking!!!

As for that overclock, thats super! But I would lower it down a notch. Its not good to over throw safety temps as they usually are to preserve safety and making the product last longer.
They usually set those lower than the temp you can damage it though to warn you, and provide a safety barrier.

As people are saying, lower it to around 3.4

i dont think liquid cooling will be necessary but thats very hot even for a P4 u should think about getting a better cooler, i think this one looks good http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061

Well, I underclocked it just a few minutes ago, it started to get rather unstable, and from the most part, seem slower. So, I clocked it down to 3.36 GHz. And I must say, it actually performs faster! Because this is the first time in my computers entire life where it's loaded Staem before it's loaded VNC server! That never happens...

Also, the temperatures will be lower now that the clock rate is lower. Seems to be a rather successful overclock! Thanks for all the help and information guys!

Yuppers! All is well with my CPU. It's getting old, and I'm getting a new machine in the next few months anyways, this time I'm goign dual-core, see how well those X2s overclock!

But what about my Windows buttons? That's not the CD/Product Key. Aint nothign no one can do with some digits. Who cares either...it's Windows...

So, I did just that, with a 30% auto-overclock from the motherboard, and in no time flat I was pushing 3.64 GHz, and only having raised the idle temp a mere 3C, being at 58C idle. I haven't stress tested the sucker in BF2 yet, but in a half hour or so, that will all change. Here's a screen shot to show you guys my new overclock!

Nice overclock! I can almost get my Opty to overclock that much but it doesn't like it... I only got through one run of AquaMark3 . And I don't mean that it is that same clock speed, just the same difference.

And live it on the edge man! I'd say keep it up there! That processor is getting a tad old anyway!
