The lower the temps the longer the life, his CPU has a very short life, I would worry seeing anything but a Prescott that high.

Don't try to influence him, just get those for him for christmas, so he is forced to install them promptly.

those temps are fine according to AMD (idiots) but i doubt there will be a dramatic decrease in life expectancy. if he built it himself, tell him to reseat the heatsink or somethin, cause those are a little above normal lol

i'm with Plague, you people think 50C is hot, my Northwood runs at 63C full load and my athlon runs at 59C full load and i've had no issues. It might decrease life expectensy from 100years - 99.5 years. and by then he'll be dead so it's not an issue. If his CPU died, and he was using the stock heatsink and fan properly then AMD will just have to replace it (which it wont die, it's funny the way no one has ever reported a dead CPU even after all this time, have a think about that you sheep. one person says 60C is way to hot and you all start saying, hey if he said it then it must be to hot, if it's not causing problems then why the hell should he be worrie about temps).
