Default AMD Tempuratures

Ok I just got done looking at the overclocking thread and was wondering if the tempuratures given are averages or max. Cause it shows my CPU temp as being 85-90 is this the max or average.

I have an AthlonXP 2400 and it runs underload at 52 -56 and is always on day and night.

SPEEEED UP Windows XP using the secret tweaks in these videos.

for any AMD and Intel for that matter, is usually better kept under 60C.

How can your idle be 85-90C and you load be 52-56C? For load thats fine but your appearent idle is way off

i concur Trotter. those temperatures are acceptable for load. not brilliant but still acceptable. 85-90 degrees is the TOP end of the operating temperature range.

my Athlon XP 2800+ (in the family system) runs at around 50-60ºC
it used to go up to 70ºC, I had to cut a hole in the side of the case and put an extra fan blowing onto the CPU cooler
