    I think he is referring to the the ASK AMD part. Check attached for clarification.

    Max Die Temperature

    General AMD Athlon XP Processor Specifications Model Number Operating Frequency (MHz) Nominal Voltage Max Die Temperature

    AMD Athlon XP (1500+ to 2100+) at 1.75V = 90 Degrees Celsius MAX

    AMD Athlon XP 2200+ at 1.65V = 85 Degrees Celsius MAX

    This is pretty much what it has on the site...

    that would be in an idea climate but for people like myself where its 110 degrees outside during the summer and below freezing outside during the winter those specs don't match up.

    I think they mean...

    Ya, I think AMD is trying to say that their Athlon XP (Palamino) CPU's are not meant to be run above 90 degrees Celsius = 194 degrees Fahrenheit.

    These specs don't reflect the temperature that the CPU is meant to be run at.

    Personally mine runs from about (42C to 57C) which is nowhere near 90C. I wouldn't even run my computer if the CPU temp went over 65C. But thats just me...
