AMD Max Temperatures...get closer to them!! - Page 2

post #11 of 23
My x2 runs at full load max 58c at first i was kinda like.. well i wish it wasnt that hot..but then i started to see some other ppls runs at high rates.. so it dosnt bother me at all really.. but yes i would prefer to keep it lower than 58 at load but until i can afford some cooling system it works fine for me.

well i figured that processors are made a little tougher than ppl keep thinking so y worry.. and as txtmstrjoe wrote in his little faq.. sure it will cut down on teh life of your cpu.. but you most likely will get a new one before it dies natually

I think that an interesting point to remember as well is the issue of sensor calibration.

Even if we're using sensors reading from the cores of the CPU, who's to say that these are calibrated properly anyway? The only true way to know for sure what how much heat is being dissipated is to use something like a thermal imaging camera, or using a temperature probe that's precisely calibrated. Such techniques are far beyond the reach of most average overclockers/PC enthusiasts (talk about oxymorons - average overclockers ).

I guess that, with experience, we develop a sense for temperature-related issues with our systems. There are tell-tale signs, after all.

Of course, once you smell smoke, you've probably gone a bit too far...

This point is definitely true.

I've seen CPUs get trashed and abused, then bounce back up and beg for more. Bent pins, sheared pins, dunking in oil, chips being tossed and dropped like a hot potato... I've got some crazy friends who apparently can afford to buy a new chip if theirs reach a state beyond any repair.

I've bent a few pins myself, but it's nothing a firm but sensitive touch can't fix.

Tough little things...

Why do are many overclockers here so afraid to get their CPU hot?? I mean, the AMD Athlon X2 series has a Maximum temperature of 65°C! So why does everyone always get worked up when their CPU hits 50°C under load?? I mean, you've still got 10-15° of headroom don't you??

Even if your CPU manages to hit 65°C your mobo will (hopefully you've set it) automatically shut your PC down....and I mean 4 seconds at 65°C isn't going to cause any damage, is it? It can't cause your system any more damage than a power failure anyway!

Who's the last person who fried their modern CPU these days, honestly?

Sure a hot CPU would most certainly live a shorter life, it's still unlikely to "die" anytime during it's non-obsolete days.....
Uhhmm.. AMD says that the Athlon Dual Cores can reach over 70 without being damaged and if they do hit critical they will shut down automatically. Mine has reached 71 degrees (well according to the sensor.. >_>) and nothing happened, no damage to the proc or mobo. But I don't think that my readings are correct, just pointing out that the X2's (well atleast the Brisbane) can go over 70 degrees.

However the lower the temp the better the CPU will live so keep those temps down boys and girls

Hah, I wish my sensors weren't so messed up, I have one reading that tells me 61C at load and another telling me 44c at load. If I knew what my real temp was, I'd probably won't mind pushing this thing to 60C. My Bios temps gives me 38C, so I'm guessing 44c is right, but that 61c bothers me somewhat

Yeah, I've tried that..But my heatsink has lots of fins and I don't know how evenly the heat's distributed, when it's on load though, it just feels warm

A simple anology...
Would you rather run 10 miles on a hot summer day or on a cool spring day?

Heat/recommended temps....
What is to happen if you run on the fringe and for an uncontroled reason your ambient (room) temps spike up.
