I am sorry if I haven't read or googled it enough already, but I just can't seem to find what my CPUs (AMD Athlon II X4 651K) temps should be. If possible, can anyone specify what temperature it should produce in load and idle, and at what temperature should I start to get worried about it being damaged, overheating. Also for the record I am using HWinfo64 to read the temp from thermal sensor, since it allows me to easily display it while playing games on an OSD.

if you are under 60c at load (not stress testing) then you are fine. athlon II ran cool for CPUs.

Thanks there mate, I was away for a while. Also, if you know, can I be sure that if HWinfo64 says my CPU is 57 degrees on presumably fulload, that it actually is 57 degrees?

Okay, my cpu while playing witcher 2 on high seems to hit up 60-61 degrees. Would that already be considered a problem? Also by the lack of info online, it seems I have found a processor on par with holy grail in rarity.

60-61 with a stock cooler is OK, you can always get an after market cooler
