    Hi all,
    Just out of interest could anyone tell me what sort of temperature an AMD xp1600+ chip should be expected to go up to without problems. Or indeed any of the newer chips out these days
    Just wondering thats all

    Thanx in advance

    I would think around 50c operating temp is close to the top for the amd xp's, at least my opinion. They may run a little hotter than that but you need a little room for error.

    50C? wow, that seems AWFULLY low. I don't know, I'm a novice at overclocking, but I know I got my p4 up to 56 w/o overclocking it at all. Apparently some chips can go up to 70-80C w/o problems, depends on the chip. I'm surprised that AMD would come out with such a low max temp for such a high end chip :(

    amd says 70 c, the 50 is my definition of safe.
    Kid is running his xp2200 at 52 c with a 175 front side bus
    It's stable.

    thanks all,
    I just found an AMD website which gives max operating temps as 90 deg C (normal without problems) hot stuff!!!
