I was wondering if 150'o F is to high for a cpu? Its an AMD-K6-2

As I sit up in my bed looking at all the stars, I begin to wonder... WHERE THE HECK IS MY ROOF!?

I don't think it will fry it very quickly, but I'd cool it down a bit. Also, try posting your temps in Celcius as that's the "worldwide" measurement prefered by geeks.

I'd get an Athlon/Duron/PIII/Celeron type cooler (aka SocketA/Socket370). Even a small cooler of this "universal" type is better than available Socket 7 coolers, and they DO fit.

Yes, I know, I subtracted 32 and multiplied by 5/9

Yeah, even in the US, degrees F doesn't cut it for cpu/system temps. Weird how that works. 65C is high though, especially if it's a socket temp lower than actual core temp.
