Caffinehog said:The hotter you get, the more likely it is to crash... especially when overclocked. You may be able to get away with about 55-65C under load, but much higher will crash it. It isn't likely to run long over 70C. AMD factory specs say the CPU will survive 90C for short periods of time. This doesn't mean it will run that hot, just that it won't hurt it. Overvolted processors can be damaged even at cool conditions, so don't go too far with that. A good rule of thumb is 50C under load or less.
