Re: Recommended temperature for 6150 and nForece430 chips?
When idle, I can go up to 40°C and after this it is stable.
If I perform h264 encoding using mplayer (this is the last test I have done), it can heat up to 46°C; the indicators of gnome are red, so I stopped the process, because I don't know where is the limit.
(Meantime the processor heats from 28°C to 45°C as well. This is an Athlon 64 3800+ 38W).
If I use some of the 3D games of linux like the kart game or the pinball game, it reaches 46°C in only a couple of minutes.
I was afraid to continue the tests.
(PS: I know that the "red" colour is only a setting in /etc/somthiing, but ignoring the correct values it is useless to change it for know)
