AMD 1200 Temp

Hi All,

I am very new to overclocking, but the more I read the more interested I become. I am getting a new machine soon, and my current machine seems like a good candidate to attempt my first overclock. One question though. It is a AMD 1200 on an asus am7266 motherboard. I have installed a Zalman flower cpu cooler. The asus temp readings under the bios say that the processor temp is 115F and case at 82f. This seems pretty high to me, for something that is not overclocked. Any opinions on what it should be and reccommendations for overclocking? Thanks.

Can you get those temp's in C (I'm not going to attempt spelling it.. )? They sound Okay, but I don't know my F -> C conversion ratio..

Welcome to AOA, jonnycharlotte!

AMD Thunderbirds get hot. 115F isn't bad at all--unless your machine is in a 60F room.

The Zalman Flower HSF's aren't built with overclocking in mind. Don't know if you want to go to the trouble and expense of buying and installing a high performance HSF for what will probably become your second echelon machine.

Extra cooling needs to be installed before overclocking is attempted. I decided to do it the other way around. Once. Toasted CPU. Oops!
