What's a "safe" temp?

Post by unfaithfulsfan » Fri Jun 20, 2008 9:32 pm

I've got my CPU OC'd to approximately 2.11 GHz and the temp is hovering ~36C. I've read on different forums and in various articles that most AMDs will withstand temps up to ~50C. I know the risks of OCing and I certainly don't want to blow up my rig. :prayer: At the same time, I'm still getting a handle on this operation. So any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Keep going till you hit 40? That's probably a safe margin.
