Is this a good temperature for an OCed Athlon?

I OCed my 1000Mhz Athlon (10x100) to 1333Mhz (10x133) and my temperature went from an average cruising temp of 37 to 38 C up to 42 to 43 C and under some heavy stress of UT it went up to about 45 C, is this good temperature? Am I alright doing this? Also just a tid bit, my MB temp is at 32 C under UT load.

  1. Urgh... was the other temperature question posted by you? If so, I hope you learn that some of us get annoyed by this! If not, my apologies.

  2. I posted one in this forum a few days ago asking if my 54 C was too high that my Asus probe was giving me, this is totally different, I've now lowered it to 38C, then overclocked and it runs about 41 to 43 C at 1333Mhz, sorry to be a bother, I just wanted to know what the norm was, jeez, helpful forums these are... [shakes head]
  3. Um... I don't think so.

    Looks to me to be the same as what you're posting here.
    And you got a few replies in that thread!
    Please check back with the questions you ask instead of posting them repetitively!

  5. I basically only got two replies, one from you and one from some other guy (and his was mainly about his Orb) I was just wanting more different people to reply, cause basically I only got one reply (yours.) Sorry for hacking you off.
  6. Well...just so you know, my own non-O/C'd T-bird 1.333 hovers around 40 degrees. Doesn't seem to have a problem with it. I'd say your temperature is perfectly normal for a T-bird.

  7. As a note, it's better to put a post in the original thread to ask.
