THere are maximum temps for each type of processors...i.e. Pentiums, xp's, 64's.

I swear i read that xp's are capable of 75C max temps, which i assume means before it melts.

And 64's are only capable of 65C max temps.

So just keep your sempron under 65C to be safe. But you should keep aim to keep it below 55 IMO.

Edit: XP's die temp max is 85C

Stay under 60*C.... Anything over 60*C is venturing into dangerous territory and will rapidly shorten the overall life span of your CPU.

One thing to keep in mind that some times temp probes aren't 100% accurate, therefor if you're living on the edge running 65*C under load, your cpu could actually be higher than that.

I swear yiffy mentioned the life span of CPU's once. Its like

starting lifespan 15yrs

OCing makes it 10 yrs

High temps would make it what? 7 years?

I had a computer for about 6 years once. But those days are long and passed.

Drastically less if you run your processor super hot...
