I have an old athlon 64 amd socket 939...then there is a number...3800+.......2.4 ghz. was just wondering what safe idle temp and full on temp while gaming is. I am idling at about 38-40 degrees celsius and and around 50-54ish while gaming. I am thinking about doing some overclocking so what would my highest safe temp be Thanks
Well C & Q will lower your CPU clocks when its using 2D, and when 3D is in play then the original clocks will kick in. I don't have any experience with this as I do not overclock and i do not use C & Q. Good luck!
Turn it off while overclocking, then see if you have problems when it is enabled after you've found a stable clock speed. You want to remove any possible causes of instability while overclocking that might make you think you've hit the max for your chip.
