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.

Thanks!

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