    Hi all, i am running a Socket A athlon chip at 1300 and mobo monitor reports average temperature of 59 degrees on the cpu i have had instabilllity probs in the past and was wondering if anyone knows the ideal temperature for these things to run at ?

    any feedback would be great

    Cheers

    actually the cooler the better and I believe 60c is about the top for that chip as far as safe zone.. I'd get some arctic silver and a new bigger fan... if you can get it to stay around 42c you'll like yourself more.

    :D

    Keep it below 70C, set yourself a 60C max temp and get better cooling.

    Insability, try upping the Vcore!

    Mine is usuing retail HSF and never goes above 56C, and idles at around 40C

    Try getting a Volcano 7+.
    Mine stays between 35 on Idle and 45 On a full Load after a few hours of use.

    it could be ur case u know, if u have alot of stuff in ur comp and it isnt a v.big case then the air cant flow properly so therefor the heat stays in the case and can cause ur cpu to be to hot.
    If that isnt the problem then i would buy some arctic silver 3, a BIG heatsink, like a coolmaster or somethin and get some intake fans and the temp will go DOWN!
