new to overclocking and temp scared.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hey, i just started overclocking my Athlon64 3800+. It's stock at 2.4 and it would idle around 35C. I have it at 2.52 right now and it is idling around 38.
I'm on stock cooling. Does anyone have any suggestions at what temp i should stop? Thanks alot.

I would advise not letting the temp go above 55C under heavy load, e.g. a couple of hours of Prime95. Long as its below that, thats fine

CoreTemp is the actual temperature inside the core of the CPU

Temp1 is the temperature sensor next to the CPU socket on the motherboard.

Go with the CoreTemp one

If you start to go over 55C you should panic..

actually seriously watch your "core temp" while using prime.

No offense if you are aware of this already but since your "cpu temp" is read by a diod in the cpu socket, its temp is delayed by the low conductivity of the silicone. So if your pushing it and your looking at the "cpu temp" its to late because your "core temp" is the diod inside the cpu and has already hit a higher temp.

edit, dang prosser you kinda beat me to it..

ok good, i was assuming that core temp was right anyway considering it is the friggin core.
