According to http://www.intel.com/support/processors/celeron/24767.htm,
you shouldn't go over 80°C.

I've got an Athlon running at 1446 that has yet to go over 69°C w/ 100%
load, 24/7 (typically runs at 66°C).

So yeah, you might want to look in to some case fans / a new heat sink /
whatever.  Soon.

Subject: [RC5] CPU Temperature

I have been running dnetc for a while now and I am curious about how
much it raises my CPU's temperature.  I have a Celeron 800 which runs at
about 55C without dnetc running and 83C with dnetc running.  I do have 4
IDE devices and a floppy drive in the case.  Is this temperature too
high for the CPU, because I don't want to cause any damage to it. 

I know my hard drives get very warm from constant use but I can't move
them around because of lack of space.  Any suggestions?
