    Not really doing anything particularly processor intensive, so I reduced it when it started getting hot again the other day.

    Depending on version, it should be able to run without error for a while at 85^C, as the AMD spec sheets mention.

    This chip is rated at 90 degs
    should maybe up the voltage to get 2400 out of it

    Dont forget that upping the voltage too much will decrease the life of your cpu

    Well I'm at 1.8v atm, and my CPU temp is 59.5. I'm stable at 2.2GHz, If I try to push it to 2.3 or more I get errors on Prime95 so I'll stick where I am, I think

    fact is you will upgrade long before the increased voltage will destroy your cpu...

    It is odd to me that people will drop mad cash on a new system, heat generating cards, drives, PSU's, and coolers, but wont kick out a couple extra for air conditioning to cool the room the thing is in.

    Fact is, my computer room is warmer in the winter, when I have the heat running!
    I used to have something here.
