i just put in a 9800gt sc and im stress testing it. testing the gpu with occt and the cpu with orthos. after 10mins the gpu got to a max of 71*C and the cpu got to 65*C. how is my cpu temp? i have an amd athlon 64 x2 5600+ windsor 2.8ghz. i know its hot but is it too hot? dont say get a better hs/fan cuz its not gona happen. i just need to know the max temp my cpu should get to before i should simply not use my pc until i get better cooling.

Temps are fine. Yout temperatures won't get that high using appications or playing games anyways, so you're good.

not too hot, not abnormally hot. that's a normal running temp for an X2 on air. no problems. and erocker is right, that is higher than they will get on normal load.

yeah, those are ridiculously low by default. An aftermarket cooler could get you to 40s or lower, depending on ambient temps. especially since your cooler is not rated for it. however, 65 is not too hot.

digibucc is right. I think the Max temp rating for your CPU is 75C, so you are within tolerance range. You may want to go ahead into your BIOS and set the temp alarm a little higher.

If you want to feel more comfortable, turn off AMD cool and quiet and use the mobo fan control system. Run your CPU fan at say no less than 65% and set to go to 100% at temp of 60C. Doing this should bring the temps down some, but you really want to get a better cooler.

I would say yes. at the very least, not abnormal.

it's hard to do step by step dealing with different mobo bioses. you will need to hit f2, or del, or any other number of keys to enter your bios. then in there, you will find cpu settings, and amd cool and quiet. you can disable it. you can then look under hardware, or pc health - for fan settings. if not there, you will need to get software for it (in windows).
