If you're talking about 114 degrees F, then that's not too bad. If it's at 114 degrees C, then you're in big trouble

You don't really want to let it get higher than 60C (140F), but the highest operating temperature for an Athlon is about 90C (194F). And by highest operating temperature, I mean if it gets that high it might not light on fire, but you should turn it off real quick
