Heat on a k63-450
hi, i looked in my BIOS and found that my k63-450 is running at 45c/113f does that sound hot to you?
Hi. My k6-3 450 @ 525 (2.8 vcore) ..alpha, silver paste, lapped..and a 80 mm case fan blowing directly on sink..according to sandra....30C after flying from half hr to 45 min of MS CBFS. =) never any bsod's or instability of any kind.
max temp for the k-6 is 60/c but personaly i dont like mine to go above 50/c as i see mere errors when it is that high so i laped it and got a alpha heat sink and y-tech fan and added some more fans to my case now it never goes above 40/c and that running my K6-2-450 @ 525 with a 3.0 v-core lol [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]

We have a K6-3 400 at 450 and usually about 68F. Stock fan & sink.
my k6-2 450 system gets a little unstable at those temps so i have to keep the case open a bit for it to run at about 105F. If I were you I would get a larger heatsink, some thermal paste, and a case fan perhaps to keep air moving within your case....
well, i do have a mini regular fan (a foot by a foot) blowing on high power in there too. What is your reccommended core voltage ( presently it is at 2.2v, but it goes up to 3.3v.) for it to run at 500mhz? one time it worked, but i got a illeagel operation and i had to restart.
2.4 is the rated power, mine has been running at 500+ for several months now. stable.
K6-III come with several maximum allowed temperatures. You can determine yours by decoding the part number written onto the chip.
It looks something like this:
where fff is the core frequency in MHz, x is the form factor (A: socket-7, B: notebook), y is the voltage (H: 2.4V, F: 2.2V), and z is the maximum temperature (Q: 60C, X: 65C, R: 70C).
AMDK6-III/450AHQ would be 2.4V 60C
AMDK6-III/450AFX would be 2.2V 65C
(... and an
AMDK6-III/400ACK would be a 2.0V 80C "P" type mobile applications processor, something end users won't be able to buy :-)
Anyway, if that 45C reading is correct, then there's no reason for getting hectic about it.
