Hello,
I haveathlon II X4 3.44 (OC)_
whats the normal temp under 100% load ?

More about : athlon temp

you CPU temprature can vary depending on the quality of your heatsink and coolers, but as long as it doesn't go any higher than 85 celcius you should be in the safe zone.

hope this helped,

85 isn't safe. You're already frying the chip. Don't get past 60 C at full load. If so, get a better cooler.

85 is safe for GPUs only.
Processors can't handle that much.Keep it below 60c or at most 65c.

What are your temps?

72c is speced max temp, I agree don't go over 60 though

Yeah dude, I've got my 630 running @ 32C on 100% load. I've got an aftermarket air cooler though

oh yeah its OC'd too, 3.5 GHz

Dickcruz you must have gotten the best 630 of the lot. I do not know how you are running stable 3.5GHZ at 1.2v, but the 1.2v is the main reason your computer stays so cool. Most people will have to increase voltage to max safe limit 1.425 or even higher to reach that 3.5Ghz. I would love to see some pics of your specs, cpuz and prime running for an hour or so. And what HSF are you using? I might wanna try same set up if I can see proof it worked =).

I want an Athlon II BE model. An Athlon II 655 x4 at $140 would be awesome plus. Maybe the second revision could be the 666, har har.

Crap, dude :p  there's an extra 1 there and I did it a couple of times . na its a 1.375 and i have my nb overvolted to 1.2... something i have not downclocked my ht and my chipset is on auto but i reinstalled windows recently and reflashed my bios nowerdays my prime 95 fails after 4 hours but it doesnt crash, it gives me a rounding error.

luches,

I also have the Athlon II X4 620 at a 3.45 GHz (OC) with an Arctic Cooler Freezer Pro 7.2 cpu fan and an Antec Three Hundred Series case.

My max temp at 1.39v under 100% load is 51C.


btw

At 85C your processor will be like Kevin Bacon in Flatliners.

What cpu temp monitoring software are you using?
