Remember, the bios takes temperatures from the air in the socket, not the CPU itself, so it wont be accurate. The "danger" temp would be AMD's specified temperature, which is usually 90 or 95 celsius.

As to overclocking, you wont get much benefit from unlocking the CPU as its already at the 6.5 muliplier, 6 is the minimum I've ever seen work. Just bump up the FSB slowly, checking for stability after every alteration.

Could you post a pic of your homemade heatsink?
Dual XP1600+ AGOIA "Y" @ 1875mhz WATERCOOLED 33C LOAD

Undergoing overhaul. Hard Locking to 13.5X multiplier for theoretical clockrate of 1944mhz 144mhz FSB

1X Duron 1.3 AHCLA "9" @ 1430mhz

1X Celeron 1000mhz

1X Pentium3 450 DECEASED

Folding Under AOA-UK for team 45!
