Hotter'n hell according to this:

http://users.erols.com/chare/elec.htm

95 centigrade = 203 farenheit

But:

Please note that the 'Max. Case Temp.' is the maximum temperature allowable as measured on the exterior of the processor package in the middle directly above the chip die (under the heatsink). It is not the maximum internal ambient temperature of the system enclosure. The term 'case' refers to the processor's package, not the system case.

95c on the chip die surface, not heatsink. I wouldn't let it go over 55 or 60 C in extreme conditions.

my two cents

I have a question for you, Brain... my P4 1.5 Ghz has lately been at 60c very often and starts to drag and lock up, just after 10 min or so doing simple tasks. Is this normal at 60c? What was the name of that site that sold those super-cooler air conditioner things? Are those worth it?

thanks, I will try those sites. I remember finding a good one before but didn't order anything yet and forget the name of the site, and it must be out of my page history by now. Say brian... go look out your window, are you getting this? Sorry to barge in on this thread.
