Celery400@600, but 50 Degrees C
got a Celery PPGA 400@600 and sometimes 618, but the temperature is some 50 degrees Celsius after 15min of Q2demo. I use Titan K635T, which is 35mm high with ball bearing, but it doesn´t seem to be enough. Do U think it is dangerous for the CPU and how can I cool it better? Thanks Tom

What is your core voltage?
50 sounds too high .. my cell 366@577 maxes out at about 33..
I use a slightly oversize heatsink with a 4 inch case fan tied to it.. And I do keep the case cover off..
I would suspect your sensor is not reporting accurately or you do not have good contact between the heat sink and fan...
If 50 is an accurate reading, I would worry about that...

50c is normal(though not healthy)if you don't have a good cpu fan and overall case ventilation. When I had my Cel366@550, it use to run up to 55c. All I had was a little heatsink and ballbearing fan. So I loaded my case with fans(7), got myself a dual cpu fan and now it's down to 35c @606. I recommend you purchase a higher quality cpu cooler and don't forget the thermal paste.
Check out 3dfxcool.com. They have a pretty good selection.
