Just wondering what is the ideal range that you want to keep your temperatures at? My friend just had a processor burn up on him not too long ago so I'm a little paranoid now about system temps.

Anyhow, my Athlon 1800 (not overclocked) seems to stay within the range of 40-45 degrees celcius. This is with the stock Heatsink/Fan, should I upgrade? Also, what is considered a "safe" level of heat for the Athlon 1800?

As for the system temperatures, so far I have not seen it go above 30 degrees celcius. The system is usually between 27-30 degrees.

Thanks in advance for the help!

normal temperatures are something about 50C or under so urs seem fine especially for stock heatsink

I get 46~52*C depending on the speed of the fans set & 22~29*C for the board, the faster the CPU HSF is the hotter the board gets.

Anything below 55 i'd say as their rated to 90c

If u have decent cooling then don't worry bout it, its whether the systems stable or not which is the issue. If it falls over its not stable therefore either increase cooling or drop the clock (if oced)
