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.
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.
