I am currently running an Athlon x2 @2.7ghz. I want to overclock it but my temperature is way to high. Its 45c on idle and 68c on 100% load. What should I do and what temperature is safe for this processor.
As your working on a tight budget I recommended the 440, or 445, its more than sufficient for most needs,
without going ott on cost, you can go for something higher but it would be costing you unnecessarily imo.
Ya that sound just right. Most likely I will wait and get a Phenom later on. A friend gave me a Stock Phenom CPU Cooler (with heatpipes). My Temperature went down to 39c idle and 59c 100% load. And on top of that I was able to overclock it from 2.7ghz to 3.0ghz stable on that cooler. That will do the job for a while. =)
