Highest safe temp for a P3

Discussion in 'Benchmarks & Performance' started by TheNightMonkey, Jul 16, 2002.

  1. I o/ced my P3 933mhz to about 1ghz, and my temperature will sometimes hit 60 degrees celcius but not often. Is 60 degrees celcius a safe temperature or should I let up a little on the o/cing.

    Ow OW OW!!!!!!!!

    A little too hot for me!


    Get more fans in there
    Rounded cables
    or something

    not going to gain much by going to one GB from 933


    aint worth toasting a computer for a few extra frames per sec


    that's my opinion and I'm sticking to it

    just get a better fan, make sure that there is proper ventilation in the room, that helps alot.

    thats ok, I am madly overclocked and am able to keep at 44 C at full load no matter what with a volcano 7+. Only problem is that it is like a freaksing hair dryer.
