My System Specs

Default Max temperature

I have a AMD X2 4600 2.4Ghz.

I've overclocked it to 2.71Ghz, this is with a Thermaltake Blue Orb fan cooling the CPU
Idle Temperature is 33c
Load Temperature is 48C

Am I ok with those temperatures, or is it getting to hot at load???

Thanks

you're good up to 65 degrees. truth be known you probably wouldnt see problems till you topped 80. but keep it below 65 if you dont want to unduly shorten its life
