    At around what temperature would a CPU running for approximate 5 to 10 seconds? Room temperature was about 90oF, and there was CPU fan on the processor. I have heard that they get to extreme temperatures with no cooling whatsoever, and I was curious about it.

    It should auto shutdown due to the bios being set right so it won't go over a temp. that is destructive, ie 70c, maybe lower depending on the default.

    Amd processors have high core max temperature.

    I will refer you to this image:

    CPU core temperature

    So a 1 GHz AMD Athlon Slot A is 70C but a 1 GHz AMD Athlon Thunderbird is 90-95C.

    So maybe a thunderbird can run 5 seconds at 110C dunno... which is about 230F.

    That processor has no thermal management features....if it has no cooling, it will reach 600F in a timeframe of about 2 seconds :eek:.

    And that's not exaggerating......Tomshardware did a review on it.

    :zzz: :zzz:

    Anyway....putting voltage across a CPU is kind of like putting voltage across a space heater filament.....it will glow red very quickly if the fan ain't blowing. Space heaters have auto-shut off when the thing gets knocked over and the airflow is blocked.....A good CPU should have a safety shut down system also. Ever stick your hand over the air intake of a hair dryer? Same thing! :p

    The good news is if you can find a replacement for that CPU it won't cost much. :D

    Check this out:

    Hot Spot - How Modern Processors Cope With Heat Emergencies

    http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/20010917/index.html

    Note it isn't "Modern" anymore, since this was written in September of 2001, but you get the idea.

    Check out the video too.....

    The removal of the heat sink proves to be fatal. In less than a second Athlon 1400 dies the heat death. It doesn't take long and the core reaches a temperature of extremely hefty 370 degrees Celsius / 698 degrees Fahrenheit. If the user of the Athlon system doesn't turn off his box immediately, the motherboard will be destroyed too. There's even the risk of a fire.
