is 60 degrees celsius ok on your cpu? i have a amd phenom quad at 3 ghz but overdrived it to full performance, i have a ultra u12 fan and I understand that it could just support the 3ghz, but with the over drive it rose at 39 degrees cel on idle and like 60 full load, I'm pretty much pushn it huh, imma get a better cooler later but am I good for now, and at this rate how long you think my pc would last,1yr or 2?

60C is still within its safe range it shouldnt be an issue. The stock cooler is designed to keep it to that or lower on stock speed and they always set the max safe temp much lower than the level where the heat would affect the CPU.

It's safe but lowering it certainly would not hurt.

I always try to keep my CPU's under 60C. I would recommend a better cooler. Keeping CPU cool will result in better overclocking.
