fx-60 dual core - Page 2

The Big Typhoon will give better temps than the stock HS/F, but for a stock, it's a very good heatsink. It beats out some of the lower-quality coolers.

To answer your question....

The only real way you will risk harming your cpu is if you overheat it, as long as you keep that under 50 degrees celcius, you are safe, go for it!

Some say 50c some say 55c, what is the highest these processors cant get to before damage occurs. I know the cooler the better and the longer the chip will last, but I was wondering if anyone know the true max temp before damage occurs.

It's actually quite high. AMD rate these chips on their website to around 70°C (check website for individual CPUs) and I believe that thermal throttling kicks in (if available/on) at about 80°C to avoid damage.

I think it very rare now aday that someone actually fry a processor...because the of all the types of quality cooling on the market. Unless someone would go crazy and want to break some record..or ones forget to monitor their temp after make changes in the BIOS...
