Simple Question: What is the max temp on AMD X2 5000+

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.

you hit 60C load (still climbing?) you need to look into others way's of removing the heat from that chip

Thanks a bunch for the response.

Looks like I'm gonna have to buy a new HSF and some thermal paste.

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?

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.

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.

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?

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?
