    What's up guys!

    I Overclocked my P4 2.26 533FSB CPU to 17 X 142/35 (2413). Using Thermaltake's Dragon 478 with Artic Silver 3 compound. Fan at 5037 RPM.

    My average tempatures is 33.5C to 35.5C

    I have ran Sandra's Burn-In Wizard (full-load test, only on CPU) for 30 Min. The temperature is about 43C or 44C.

    It's my first overclocking experience. Am I on the safe side??

    Thanks!

    that is kinda hot, but anywhere around there is OK, just make sure you do not go above 45C. restart every once and a while too,

    Completely normal temperature.

    My P4 1,6 @ 2138 is still running stable, crunching 100% cpu usage (seti) 24/24h, for two months now. Max temp 46 C, min temp 38 C. Depending on room temps of course...

    So whats a safe temperture for an overclocked AMD?

    my temp is at 37 degrees steady, and I'm overclocking the ram, not the CPU.

    Depends
    - my cousin has an T-Bird 1.33 runnin at 65 and works great

    50 degrees for an overclocked cpu ( doesn't matter model ) is enought !

    You better hope that's a spelling mistake. It is arctic silver not artic silver.

    Not a big deal. It's a major deal. Fraudulent arctic silver is on the market with the name 'artic silver'.

    with big increases in temperature like that, the life of your chip will undoubtedly go down. If this were 2 years ago I would so who cares, but upgrades are further inbetween now that these jumps in clock speed have picked up. I would seriously consider heading to your local parts shop and getting a big honking fan (or two) to run off your 12 V and point it straight at your chip. Some come with the standard 4 wire connector and you can plug em straight onto your power supply wiring. These fans'll cost you a few bucks but might make a huge difference. If you wanna go nuts there are liquid cooling things to do too. I assume that since you overclocked you don't have a huge billfold.
    If not maybe use your computer to cook breakfast, couple eggs, some bacon, if you do let me know how it turns out.
