As far as I know... from OCing all kinds of AMD and Intels, the system will start messing up before it melts. Pushing all kinds of voltages, when you get the blue screen it's saying it's not getting too hot or too much voltages. Just do it in small increments so you don't blow past that "CPU error --> CPU destroyed" stage.

As far as CPU core temp... i haven't had any problem with CPUs under 65C. I think even my set up the temp goes up to 63-65. I've had the 9950 BE for now 6 months, works still great overclocked at 3.0. I haven't really messed around with it since oct 08.

Your numbers are fine, just do a torture test see where it peaks. If it's like going past 65C then I would back it down OR get a better cooler even the new water cooler that's self contained for $70 (gee I wish I have have gotten that when I built this computer!)

I just got this same CPU and I am idleing at 34c and have peeked at 41c on an air cooled system. I was worried this was to hot considering my last CPU was AMD 64 FX x2 62 that would run as low as 78f

These are cool temps. 60-70C is high.

Still oc'd at same setting currently. I haven't checked temperature for some time now. Still running smoothly overclocked. I've upgrade to windows 7. Windows 7 rates the 9950 at 7.3 (of 7.9). Memory and CPU haven't melted over almost 2 years? Even if your temperature is running high, I think if it's at equilibrium, it'll run fine forever. Forever being lifetime of a CPU what would that be? 2 or 3 years at the most until the next upgrade?

I thinking about upgrading. The best AMD out is Phenom II six core at 3 Ghz versus Intel i7 six core... Priced similarly to AMD is quad core i5 or i7. This 9950 is still pretty fast, slowest things are the memory and harddrive.

Wait until Bulldozer is out and prices deflate for a Phenom 2 and DDR3 or get a Phenom 2 and keep your DDR2?
