Default CPU Temp

What is the highest a processor can run b4 melting?

I have an AMD 64 3200+ and it runs anywhere from 40-52 C

Also the CPU fan kicks on and off...kind of unnerving is there a manual override to keep the fan on at all times?

80C is really hot...like what 160F?

Q-Fan is a waste unless you are REALLY concerned with noise.

The CPU fan that came with the CPU is not even loud anyways

conversion is:

(C x 1.8)+32=F
(80 x 1.8)+32=176 degrees F

U.S. needs to convert to metric everything

feet and inches are stupid

12=1 what crackhead made that up

its all about 100cm=meter and so on

10>12

also Celsius makes more sense 0 freeze instead of 32???
