Run the test for 1 hour or more, if your temperature is under 70C is good, if isn't think in buy a CPU cooler. | Report abuse JDV28 January 6, 2010 11:40:01 PM ok, i have done some OCing before, but im not sure about what these new(ish) quad cores are supposed to be at. so i guess under 70C is ok? | Report abuse saint19 Overclocking Master January 6, 2010 11:48:09 PM Yes, under 70C is safe, i have a 955 and always run under 68C. (i doesn't clean my case in a long time) | Report abuse JDV28 January 6, 2010 11:50:44 PM ok thanks a bunch, even overclocked it should stay under 70c during stress test? | Report abuse Best solution saint19 Overclocking Master January 7, 2010 12:23:58 AM Yes, even OC it should stay unde 70C during the stress test. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Overclock AMD PII 940 BE> Related ressources: ForumHighest OC for Stock AMD PII 940 BE?
