    65-70ish i'd say. Or just until it gets unstable.

    max operating temperature for Athlon processors is between 85 and 95 degrees C depending on the processor, basically you've got at least 20 degrees to play with!

    info taken from AMD documentation here (NB - pdf file)

    If you take small steps and test thoroughly each time there's virtually no chance of doing any harm to the CPU much less blowing it. It is upping the voltage that's most risky, 1.65v is perfectly normal for TbredB and Barton, 1.70v is a very safe overvolt with most thinking nothing of 1.75v ... I wouldn't rec going any higher than that myself though. Temps make little diff but most mobos report core temp around 60'C before you begin to get unstable. Largely forget about the temps and concentrate on what's stable ... when you find the max o/c it is best to step back alittle though. Also consider what speeds you can achieve at the diff voltages, it may be worth running a little slower if you can save yourself some voltage.
