Keep it under 55c MAX load, under 48c is better though

Thanks. Looks like I wont be doing much OC then. If speedfan is reading my temperatures right it has core at 32-35C idle, core 48-50 with 2 apps of memtest running and I hit 54C with Orthos :/

Maybe i will try another temp monitor to double check these.

What Cooling do you have in your case?

Any Extra fans?

And what CPU Cooling do you have? Is it stock?

My case is a CoolerMaster Praetorian which has 4 fans. 2 front 2 at the back. The CPU fan is just the standard AMD one.

65° is the standard operating temp for Althon 64's but of corse the cooler the better. That is for the CPU it self. Pay more attension to your case temps. I have always made every effort to keep it under 30°. Your CPU is designed to take the heat...your other hardware might not be.

Well the temp reading named ''CORE'' is your CPU temp mate and Temp 2 is most likely your Chipset/MB temp.

However AMD X2 SERIES can take 65c however keep it below 55c matey.

Thankyou. I was sure core was the CPU but wanted one of you pros to confirm. What are the other temps then? And one that is -128C? Seems a bit wierd to me. SpeedFan is set up for the nForce4 chipset which I have not too sure how else to configure it to my motherboard. Also more importantly so I can crack on OCCT configuration asks for my case temp... Where would I find this please?
