    Question how hot is to hot for a celeron 600 overclocked

    my temps for my celeron 600 at 855 are 34'C idle and 45'C full is that too hot or should i keep overclocking? oh and how much thermal paste/glue should i use between the heatsink and cpu?

    thanks

    Cool

    Holy jesus! That high of a temp with a Golden Orb!!!! You live near the equator dont you? . Are you sure all of your system fans are working properly? What kind of case do you have your setup in? Small cheaper cases mean less air flow/weaker-less fans, etc. Maybe a nice new case could answer your woe's.

    Probably the motherboard's BIOS.

    Get a good 60mm fan 'n put it on the orb with hot glue, also make sure you got good thermal compound on the CPU

    I would be fine with those temps, but then again, I am running a duron.

    Yeah, I think AMD CPUs actually run hotter.

    Its a Coppermine Celeron, these shouldn't run any hotter than 40C or so, they can't withstand as much heat as AMD cpuz

    About your thermal paste they say take a razorblade and GENTLY rub it across the core. Get artic Silver it is worth the extra money but it is the best thermal paste out there. www.coolerguys.com you can get all your cooling needs their.

    Look at table 37 on page 57. It shows the max temp @90. I know you don't want it that hot, but that's the temp it can get to before the transistor junctions start to breakdown.

    Ya CPUs can withstand really high temps, but i'm talking about OPERATING temps. Coppermines won't run stable @ any higher than round 50C while AMD Cpus are quite happy @ 50C
