    How hot is too hot?

    I have my Athlon XP 2600 at 2.22GHz (16.5 x 134) and its at 43 degrees under full load. Does this mean i can go slightly higher?

    When you smell something burning, about 5 degrees cooler.

    Seriously though, most people like to keep a load temp of under 50, so that is what you should aim for.

    That's what I'm aiming for, but I think it's my ram holding me back

    He says his FSB is 134, not 164, and his RAM is SD-RAM so I would presume it's PC133? I dunno how well that would overclock! Who is it made by Benjamin?
