yuo sure it's Fahenheit and not celsius. That is pretty high for celsiusKage said:I'd say the temperature you should be worried about then and should dive from the pc lol...jk
is approx 90-100 degrees celcius(Thats when you should start to think about better cooling), dont know what that is in farenheit. Pentiums though do have protection to heat, and AMDs well... dont as much lol...
If a Pentium gets too hot, later ones will just slow down the clock rate until it reaches a safe level and so you're CPU stays intact! AMD as far as I can tell had problems with its protection feature and still burned!!! Prob is fixed with later models though... I hope
Hope I have helped
jesus, my heat is only about 36 celsius, guess i got gently overclock it to about 40 celsius and see what i get, but how do you overclock, you go in BIOS, rightKage said:That is only an approximate value, that came from looking at different sites oppinions but i'd say that in celsius, you are risking of really damaging the CPU/killing it, and thats what i meant really, and so at the point you should definetly turn off the pc and change the heatsink/fan lol. I'd say 55-65 is more a safe range in celsius for processors to run at
As i said though, you'll find pentiums have really good protection against that, so i wouldn't be too worried. If it is too hot, you'd more likely be suffering from lower clock speeds than damage.
If you go to Control Panel, System, just check that the clock rate is running as it sould be, and hasn't dropped but i wouldn't think at you're temperature it would have started the protection feature yet at all
