Hey there,
I'm getting into the mid 50 degree celcius range while playing games for a few minutes. I won't continue for fear of overheating my processor. I just ordered a new CPU heatsink and fan but I'm curious as to what temperature should I start to worrying at.
Thanks,
Towlie

Hey,

I have an 1100t not O.C.'ed and was playing Starcraft 2 for about an hour. My proc temp was 47C according to Asus Probe program. I was using the stock amd heat sink and fan.

THATS NOT REALLY A BAD TEMP,BUT i WOULD ALSO BE WEARY OF LETTING A PROCESSOR GET THAT WARM FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME
I MYSELF WOULD BE WATCHING CLOSELY AS NOT TO GET OVER THE 55 C MARK, i HAVE NOTICED IT DOES HAVE A SMALL ADVERSE AFFECT ON PROCESSOR POWER AFTER TIME.

AS I LIVE IN AZ I DON'T EVEN BOTHER WITH STOCK COOLERS, EVEN WITH THE AC ON I NOTICE TEMPS SLIGHTLY HIGHER THAN WHAT OTHER GET. SO I AUTOMATICALLY THROW AFTER MARKET COOLERS ON MY CPU'S.

It's not a big problem if the temp is under 70 degree celcius.

But should this 70º be the core temp or the cpu temp? i´ve read in some places it should be the cpu temp but, i´ve also found informatition stating that in full load we should look at core temp not cpu temp, anyone knows exactly what information is right?

This is the correct information on how to read you temps and which ones are/are-not accurate:
