As long as it's stable, it's not too hot.

Athlon 64/X2 processors will shut the computer off automatically if they get past somewhere in the 60-65C range, so if you get here, or if you start having program crashes/lockups/restarts/etc. then you know it is getting too hot.

I personally like to monitor my temps with Motherboard Monitor (see link in my sig), though SpeedFan (also in sig) is another good option if your motherboard is not in MBM5's list.

Hope all this helps.

It's trial and error since no two chips or boards/systems will be exactly alike, so only you can really tell us what yours can do. In my experience one of the best tools for vcore testing is to run Prime 95's "FPU Stress" test, run one copy on each core (use the affinity setting).

FWIW, I'm running a (Week 37, 2005) 4200+ @ default vcore @ 227x11 with cool n quite enabled which the vcore peeks @ 1.36V under load, @ 236x11 I had to bump the vcore up to 1.375V.

Good Luck!
