1400 amd temp limit before meltdown
I was playing Jedi Knight II and when I came out of the game my CPU temp was frying a 50 degrees Cel. Should I be concerned, it normally runs at around 45 when not underload.

The theoretical limit for Athlon processors (I think its the Thoroughbred core they were discussing, IIRC) is 90 degrees C, which equals about 184 degrees F. A more reasonable limit is your load temp, 50 degrees C, which is about 130 degrees F.

Thanks, I was worried because I used to have a 750 duron which never even got up to the 45 degree mark. When I had it overclocked at 900 underload it would run between 43 and 44 degrees.

Thanks again.

50c is fine, if it were idle @ 50c then i would worry.

Those 1.4's were the hottest running processors AMD put out, but your temps seem fine.

I have the same processor and when I'm playing a game the temperature is usually around 50 C. Normally mine is at about 43 or 44 C. You're okay!:)
