Just installed my first AMD chip, the Thunderbird 1.2 ghz on an ASUS a7v mother board. With the case closed the processor runs at 66-70C, with the case open it runs at around 62C (143F). Is this temperature to high ? Do I need more cooling ? I read somewhere that they can run up to 90C but I'm not sure how reliable that source is.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have any case fans? they make a BIG difference too, also, as mentioned, get a decent HSF on there.

Just installed a 1.2ghz T-Bird and overclocked it to 1.33mhz at 1.78 volts. My tempertures runs between 41c-45c. I use Artic Silver II, an Alpha cooler and one case fan, my power supply has a dual fan on it which contributes to the case cooling. Your temperature seems pretty high, I had a friend who forgot to peel off the plastic tape on his HSF which contained the thermal greese. Anyways his temperatures where like yours, something to check.

Your MB temperature is OK. You should buy a better cooler, or... have you applied the thermal compound between the CPU an the cooler??
