I have just aquired my first ever AMD. I have always had Intel (and still do on my main RIG). Now I must play :P

 

What is the average temperature of an AMD 1600+?

What is the maximum temperature before it goes pooof :blink:

What is the maximum temperature I should allow it to hit before I back down?

 

Thanks

 

Hey I figured I can compare the two unless I 've actually played with both!

Enjoy the ride!!!

 

 

lets see....

 

 

1. depends on cooling, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. (get my point?)

 

2. I believe they are rated for 85c

 

3. Most people around here are a tad anal (with me at the head of the class!) about temps, so I would say, try and shoot for staying under 50c full load....

 

 

 

 

 

what Mobo?

Thanks for the info....the system is not in front of me but the board is an ASUS....can't remember the model number.

 

Believe it or not someone through the board and the CPU in the garbage......and I just happened to be humple enough to pick it out. The only thing wrong.....the power supply was shot.

 

Life is good.

60 would be when I would start looking for better cooling, but in all honesty that is still a normal temp...

 

big box (dell, gateway, etc. etc.) run in the 60+ range all the time

 

but if you plan on overclocking, then cooler temps are a bit better...

I'd say 65C MAX!

:withstupid:

that's what i would say

 

BUT, like exeter said, at that point, i'd also look into better cooling, or lowering the OC a tad. I dunno where you're at, but if you're in the US, keep in mind the summer is winding down, so you should experience cooler temps soon anyways :)
