AMD Athlon 2400XP processor operating temperature

  MartynHoll 11:26 01 Apr 2004

I have just fitted a new fan that adjusts to the CPU temperature. I just want to know what the safe operating temperature of the CPU as I am finding that the fan gets 'loud' when it's at full speed (the top temperature of the CPU at present is 51)
I have seen some documentation that says the mid temperature for the 2400 is 90! If this is so, then I will set my fan manually to keep the temperature around 70 (this will keep the fan fairly quiet). Can anyone verify if this should be OK?

My temp is running at 35 and it only really gets to about 45 and im running a 2400+ at work.

I dont think that any CPU should be running at 90oC. I have a 2600+ and it is running at 58/60 and that is way too high. I am trying to get my temp down also.

What fan is this as its not cooling very well. My 2400 runs at 41 idle. Top temp for the AMD is 90

As AndySD says the top temp is 90, above that the CPU will fail, if my CPU was running above 65 I'd be concerned, it runs at about 51-55 on full load 42-46 at idle and my CPU is a 2500+

I have a 2400+ in a small micro case with just a normal HS & fan for cooling + the power unit fan. Temp ranges 53-55 idle & 60 under load. Been running with Win XP like this for 12 months with no problems. Max temp for 2400+ is 85 when your mobo would shut system down (with a 2400+ I assume your mobo must be reasonably modern and supports this safeguard)

My 2400+ runs at 100% 24/7 and the temp varies between 58 and 63 deg and has done so for a year. Way below the default shut down temp on the MB. No problem with your temps.

2500+...51 to 55 degrees

Thanks for all your feedback - it looks as though mid 50's is about normal. I have had the PC on for about 45mins and have been doing some video editing and the CPU temperature is fairly constant at 51. I think I will leave the fan alone as it is running on auto mode (I have fitted a sensor under the CPU), it peaks at around 5200rpm and then it is quite noisy, but I rather have that then a CPU that is getting too hot!
