Simple Question: What is the max temp on AMD X2 5000+ Tags: CPUs AMD Temperature Overclocking Last response: May 30, 2007 12:50 AM in Overclocking Share jjnguy13 May 24, 2007 6:25:35 AM I was just wondering what is the highest temperature that I should be comfortable running my CPU at? (Under max load) I am using speed fan to record my temps. Currently, I idle at about 39c - 40c and the max that I have let my temps get under full load has been 58c (it was still rising). AMD Athalon X2 5000+ w/ Stock HSF I've been searching the forums for a bit and can't seem to find an answer.

Reply to jjnguy13 jjnguy13 May 29, 2007 6:30:31 AM Um, what is this so-called 'lapping'? And, if I get the Ultra-120, how do I attach a fan to it, or will it provide enough cooling w/out a fan? And...Whats wrong w/ AS5? Reply to jjnguy13 jjnguy13 May 29, 2007 11:40:14 PM I've been looking at Newegg for the ultra-120, and it doesn't show that it comes with a fan. Is newegg wrong? Or should I buy the HSF from another site? I didn't know that AS5 was all hype, thanks for that piece of advise. Reply to jjnguy13 jjnguy13 May 29, 2007 11:50:19 PM Well, then I suppose that begs the question, "Which fan do I buy to accompany such an awesome Heatsink?" Noise isn't really an issue. Reply to jjnguy13 jjnguy13 May 29, 2007 11:55:17 PM Oops, another question... Will the U-120 X fit inside my Ultra Grid case and MSI K9n Platinum Mobo? It looks kinda big... And do I have to worry about gravity putting too much stress on my mobo in a vertical orientation? Reply to jjnguy13 jjnguy13 May 30, 2007 12:50:32 AM Ok, I recant my statement. I do worry about noise a little. I don't want my computer to sound like it is ready for take off.... Are there any fans that you would recomend against?
