    Hi
    I have a Dfi AD72-SN Motherborad whit the Via kt266 Chipset
    and an Athloon thunderbird 1333 Mhz , and ive over clocked is to 1400 Mhz , now i wonder is there any chance that the Cpu will wear out over time ? current Cpu Temp is : 60 celcius

    thanks

    OC'ing by that amount isn't likely to cause a problem.

    that amount of heat could shorten the life of your CPU though - I would invest in a better cooler If I were in your shoes.

    There are some fairly inexpensive ones that could get your temps down into the 40's

    Invest in some better cooling. 60C will certainly shorten the life of the CPU.

    Not that cooling is a bad thing (i have 13 fans running on my pc), but i doubt you'll still be using that Chip by the time it reaches the end of its useful life...

    if nothing else try using a different thermal compound like artic silver III or artic alumina

    or even A thermal paste of some sort.. not the standard thermal pad that you get with most basic HSFs....

    A good quality heatsink & fan will also lower your temps. What have you got at the moment?
