My AMD CPU Duron 1300 is working at 52 degrees. It seems a bit high - What is the recommended temperature?

If that is the max operating temp it is not excessive. If however that is the temperature when it is in its rest state then it is a bit high (typically 35 - 40 C).

I have an AMD on my computer the operating temperature seems tobe between 49 and 52 degrees
i have not had any problems as these CPU'S run hotter than Intel.

my AMD 1800 CPU hovers around 60C, but seems ok

Thanks Brian - it is the idle temp and I have purchased a thermal compound (artic silver)to apply to the chip. Unfortunately there are no instructions on how much or where it should be applied. Can you help.

the arctic silver sould be placed between the CPU and the heatsink.

You only need to put a thin covering on the core - thats that chip in the middle.

it shouldn't be put on any other parts of the chip, as the core is the part in contact with the heatskink.

the arctic silver is there to seal the miniscule gaps between the core and the heatsink, so not much is needed.
