hi
I have an athlon thunderbird 1 ghz. I have just increased my fsb from 200 to 266 and I m wondering what a safe temp range for the cpu is. It is running at 65 celcius after a benchmark (3dmark 2001se).
thanks

It seems quite high i have a AMD 1700 it runs between 49/52 degrees it's a wonder your computer hasn't shut down.

as you say that you have increased the fsb to 266, are you overclocking the cpu. 65c is ok but would suggest that ya get a new heatsink and fan, preferably all copper and a good compound (artic silver etc.) this should bring the temp down.
