Hello all, I have a AMD Phenom 9950(OC'ed to 3.2GHz), a ASUS M3A78-T mobo, and a sapphire 1GB 4850(OC'ed to 700MHz core, and 1050MHz RAM),
I have my HT OC'ed too 2.2GHz same as my NB, was just curious if ppl think that my system is imbalanced, and if so how and how could I balance it for as little money as possible.
That's probably too hot if the limit is only 61. For the newer AMD CPU's the temp limit is 73 degrees, and the general practice is to keep them under 50 degrees max. The software can be off 5-15 degrees depending on a number of factors, and thus you need to give yourself a buffer zone. Plus it's never a good idea in the interest of longevity to run things at the maximum possible temp they'll withstand for everyday use.
