I used the abit uguru thingy today to OC, on stock cooling the fan is running max. On normal clock, i get 46-49 degrees celcius. Now with the fan maxed, and the CPU at 2.376 intead of the stock 2.24 i now get 50-55 degrees celcius.<br><br>
That ok?

That is about as high as you will want to go. 55 is usually the max 24/7 operating temp that anyone will suggest. I personally say try to keep it under 50.

That is ok if that's a 100% load temperature, however, if that is just idle, then NO you must back it off.<br><br>
Stay under 55° at all costs with AMD and it's best to stay below 50°C if you can.<br><br>
My advice - get a BT, lap it, seat it, and overclock to high heaven with your 3500+<br><br><b>Damn... beat me to it tubnotub <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"></b>

i just put it back to stock speed cos it was hitting 50 on idle. So now its getting 40-45 idle and only barely ever hitting 50 under load.<br><br>
The room temp at the moment is pretty high, which is good for testing cos im preping for a lan.

The software may not be reporting correctly. Check the BIOS temp, it reflects 80% of the full load for a comaprison.
