    Safe load temp for Black Edition 5000+?

    Hey all,

    I was wondering what a safe load (max) temp was for an Athlon 5000+. Currently, I am running at 2.8GHZ (definitely going to go further, but slowly).

    Currently I am at about 35C idle / 41 load.

    I'd like to get to about 3.3 or 3.4 on air cooling.

    I think it would be smart to stop at 60c load
