I'm curious about what the max temp it should run at currently its at 53 degrees celcius. I havent been able to find it. I also am curious as to if I should change the clock speed to try for better performance currently its runing at 100Mhz/100Mhz. I am running a Socket A K7S5A motherboard 256 Mb memory. sorry Im not sure how to get the system information or I'd post more info.

Max temp for your CPU is 90°C.
You can find the appropriate specs here' "> p.6 for Duron-specs).
If you want to raise your FSB, you would prolly have to lower the processors' multiplier to get an acceptable result.

The best place to go to info about OC'ing a K7S5A would be the "Overclocking the K7S5A" section of' ">

But I can tell you right off the bat that " Go get SpeedFan from' "> " will be the first order of business!
You can use it to 'bump' your FSB from 100/100 to 103/103, 107/107 or 110/110.
Anything more than that and it's a guaranteed 'instant lockup'
So, you reboot, and you're back to 100/110

That 53°C is definitely on the warm, (but NOT hot) side, especially if you plan to overclock it.
Are you using a good, quality TIM, (like Arctic Silver 5), between the CPU and HS/F?
