AMD X2 3800+ Limits

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am wondering what the max temps at full load should be for an AMD X2 3800+ while overclocking it...

Also, what is the maximum voltage I can raise it to before damaging the CPU entirely?

Thanks

voltage will affect heat so try and keep that down as low as possible but able to keep your cpu stable, and temps i say that you should definitely stay below 60*C my load temps are about 55*C and that is the max i am going to go
