Does anyone know of a chart on this page, or on any other that lists reccommended tempertures, or maximum temps for particular processors? I have a P3 450 Secc2 and a Cel 633 FCPGA, and am interested in overclocking, but need to know where there temp should be. Much thanks in advance.
P3 450MHz you can actually go onto intel's site to find out the max temp, and the prefered temp. I happen to know by heart for the P3 450MHz cause i have a P2 450MHz, and they're rated the same.

The P3 450 will melt into a pile of goo at anything more than 60C. Intel probably left a 10C safety line, but don't go above 60C. The recommended range is 35C. As for the other, I dont know for sure, but i think its fairly similar.
