Heat

I was wonder want temp would be considered too high for an athlon64 3000+ (939) Venice core overclocked?? This is my first time overclocking an athlon64 and I have no clue about the temperature threshold of this processor.

Thanks.

Ideally I would suggest an idle temp of under 45c, as long as it doesnt go over about 55c under load it is 100% fine, try keeping it under 60c to be safe.

Wow!!! I didnt realize I had that much headroom.
This is what I got now.
Athlon64 3000+ @ 2600mhz(325x8)
Ram is clocked @217mhz
35c Idle
44c Full load

I'm using a Thermalright XP120 with a Thermaltake 120mm Smartfan for cooling.

I was afraid to push it much higher because I didnt know how much heat it could take. Now, I'm gonna shoot of 2900mhz.

Thanks

You may not run it TOO hot by spec, but higher temps can keep you OC down. Sometimes as little as 5C can help make it to the next step...
