I looked up this a while ago. I have an AMD chip.
As I understand, the tollerence for these chips is around 85c after which you can expect instability or shutdown.

Not a pain at all, keep asking as many questions as you wish. Keeps us busy and helps us to remember the answers ourselves as well ;o)

AMD XP 1800 has a max temp of 90c before falling over and though AMD don't actually give recommended temps because of all the variables in different systems they do say on their site that they are quite happy to see 58-60 running temps for their CPU's

I have the 1800 XP+ same as yours and at idle it shows 46-48c. After running a video/game or intensive screen saver it will reach 56-58 max even in this warm spell we're having at the moment. These temps are taken from the BIOS readings and tend to be more accurate than third party software monitoring applications. j.
