Default How are these temps? :)

Hi guys, been reading this board for quite a while with interest and now I've got my new rig up and running I've just got some questions... I'm gonna be super careful about my cpu (I've got very edgy ever since I blew up my 1.2gig a year ago!)

anyway here's my rig in reagrds to cpu stuff :P

XP 2400+
Globalwin CAK4-88T Thermal Control Heatsink
put on with a nice thin application of artic silver 3

I've done to sandra burn in test, running 10 loops of 100% cpu load, it reached 36C. It idles at about 30C. I need to sort out my case temp which is 21C but yeah thats another story

So how are those temps? are these temps/cooler ok for some *mild* overclocking (*has flashbacks to 1.2 going up in a puff of smoke*).

/thanks guys

From past posters, I would think that you would be fine for overclocking as your temperature went up past 55C. So as long as you stay under that mark, you could get a good stable OC. I dont know how hot the 2200 runs, so I cant give you a benchmark if your system runs higher or lower.

so basically, I have a nice bit of head room for overclocking, and as long as I'm careful and keep it under 55C everything shall be fine?

I'm guessing when my nforce 2 bios is fixed in regards to my corsair mem I shall just very gradually increase fsb, test temps, and keep going until I hit instability/55C ?

Let me refer to this thread. It helped me understand overclocking in great detail.

The lower the better when it comes to the life of the cpu. My temp is 35c/95f load, and 25c/75f ambient. Idle its about 3-5f less. Thats with watercooling though. I had a Coolermaster Heatpipe sink, which ran 98f idle, 105f load. I wanted to get into water cooling though, especially with the ablity to add onto my existing system without adding more fans.

This is with my 1.2ghz tbird at 1.33ghz, 140fsb, 9.5x multi.

It can hit 1.42ghz, but is a bit unstable, and its not from the temp or voltage, which is 1.8v and can run 1.9v with no added bonus.
