Yes, is anything over 55C LOAD is starting to get out of my comfort range. Not in the sense it is going to burn up, but the lifespan gets shorter and such.

General rule is to keep it under 50C and you are fine.

47C as Idle is far too high. You should look into clearing the cobbwebs out or something, LOL, aftermarket cooling would do well.

55C load bad for all CPU's or just AMD becuase my celery runs at about 55C Load (some times gets up to 60C but thats pretty rare).

You really dont want to be running it that hot 24/7, or even the majority of the time. Coolness is your friend!

Each chip or component has ther own temp threshold as they are designed to run at different temps, for example my 7800GTX runs at lower temps than my mates 6600GT but his threshold according to the temp monitor is about 25*c above mine.

As a rule I will not have a setting which pushes my component to half of the threshold whilst under load.................you would be surprised what a small difference it is between overclocking and overcooking.

One thing to take note of though, when I first clocked my 4400 (with the expertise of my fellow members, quite new myself) my idle temp was about 36 and load about 46, after letting my rig get past the initial jolt of power and settle in I dropped about 4/5 degrees off idle and load, so I would suggest leaving it for a while but check the temp to make sure it goes down and not up..................after that if your still not happy, upgrade your cooling

hope this helps

*** Sorry if it rants for a bit, first post of the day ***

Thats a little hot there Mate. You wont see anything wrong its just it may start to shorten the Lifespan of that CPU but it wont set fire in your PC or anything silly so just try and get some better aftermarket cooling when you can and get some good thermal compound namely AS5.

Try this, I'm using it for hardware monitoring and I've used it on an ECS mobo too, so it should work:

wow that seems a bit warm for a mobil but then again that is one of the first gen mobiles for that socket. the 2800 from what i have read and heard are not so good at ocing. if your lucky you may get 2.0 but i wouldnt expect very much more than what you got right now


btw those temps are normal for xp chips. they have always ran hot.... keep it under 60c load and you should be fine
