How hot is too hot ?

I'm new here... i was wondering...
i have a amd athlon 1500+ and my cpu temp is at 57 celcius. Is that hot ? i don't want it to overheat. What is the normal temp for this cpu? I'm planning on gettting a new heatsink. Any suggestion?


Blame me for the RAZR's
if it gets to 65 then.. RUN! hehe id take a can of compressed air and get the dust out between the heat sink you prob drop 5 degrees. (if you havent done this in awhile)
Even if i clean out the dust in the fan.... it'll be around 53 celcius. So what is the average temp for a amd 1500+ ? it got up to 60 once... so is it worth changing the heatsink ?


There is no answer!

Generally, when your CPU starts billowing smoke, making sizzling noises or suddenly decides to stop working, you know things are getting too hot :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
