AMD XP procs are all stated as having a maximum temp of 90ºC. though if mine went over 55º-60º i would worry.

my 1800+ is at this moment running at 46º but rises to 51/52 whilst playing games.

Same as paperman27 1800XP+ same temps. but would not start to worry until the 65-70 mark. Lower is better though and anything round the high 40's low 50's will be OK.

My board is set to warn at 70c but never been anywhere near that even running intensive aquarium screen saver on a very hot day.
