View Full Version : How hot is too hot?
So my Duron is runnin at 800. I know it can go to 850, maybe 900. But how hot is too hot? Right now, it's running at 132F under partial load.
It sounds too hot for not being under full load. Are you using an Alpha PAL6035 or GlobalWin FOP38 as a cooler? If not I'd highly recommend you do so TheBluGuy.
I've been looking around. You think a Chrome Orb would do it? The problem I have is that on the A7V, I think the capacitors are too close to the socket for any of the really big sinks...
If you believe the Alpha PAL6035 or GlobalWin FOP38 won't fit on your motherboard then a chrome orb will do.

132F is too hot. Mine is too cold. The water condensed around my CPU and that killed my Celeron 300a. <chuckle> Any good Intel CPU deal recently?

1000degrees is also too hot.
K, now I have a Chrome Orb. It's idling around 109. I'm much more comfortable with that...
