At that temp there would be thermal shutdowns...

Impossible, becasue AMD has stated that the thermal trip point is around 90-100C to protect it from any damage, so my advice is, go look to see if there's a BIOS update.

If they did vary considerably depending on load, then yes, it's possible your CPU was getting to 114C. Not likely, but possible.

A BIOS/sensor issue is more likely, but most chips would survive, and even operate with superficial stability at 114C for quite a while, assuming stock speeds and volts.

As for thermal protection, Athlon 64s won't auto shutdown, without 3rd party BIOS support, until 125C.

See page 35: http://support.amd.com/us/Processor_TechDocs/31119.pdf

So yes, it's perfectly possible.
The temperatures did vary, they were around 60c idle but very quickly rose to 80 and climbed its way to 90 under a medium load.

According to http://support.amd.com/us/Processor_TechDocs/31119.pdf (thanks to Blameless for showing it to me) it looks like 125C is where it shuts down.
During gaming sessions, I would experience 0-1 FPS during CPU Intensive stuff like a crowded area or a Raid in WoW. Maybe instead of shutting down it under-clocked itself to prevent it from reaching temps to trigger a shutdown?



I'm not sure if I can do it today but when I get the time I'll run some stress tests on this and see if re-seating the heatsink would lower the temperatures.

Could possibly be a software issue, as I remember reading about some prebuilts that had wonky temp sensors/BIOS.
Sorry I worded that incorrectly.

What I meant to say is that I thought the report had added together the temps of both cores and came up with a total of 114, on average that would mean they were running around 57 each.

The max temps you see on amdcompare.com do not necessarily indicate thermal shutdown. Most modern AMD cpu thermal shutdowns are 90+

The AMD 64 processors that they put in laptops are overheating champions. Mine idles at 55C and loads at 105C and has a thermal shutdown every week at least and it's still running strong after roughly 2 years like that. If you're really worried though, simply get one of those laptop coolers. By putting mine under a mesh plate with a 120mm USB fan under it lowered the temps by a good margin.
