Is this a good tempture?

Hey guys, I decided to install 64-bit again to see if it will over-heat after downloading all the drivers ATI and AMD has to offer.
SpeedFan reports my computer running at 63C
Is this a good tempture?
My CPU is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor @ 2.0ghz.
Im running vista drivers for "ATI radeon 3100"
Ive got the AMD Athlon 64 drivers.
Thanks!

You should go to the cpu mfr site and check on the max temp. 63 C is on the high end of ok, but that sepends on load, and many other factors. Find the safe operating range and you will know

Well on boot-up my system got so hot it shut down so I guess NOT.
Im using my old laptop BTW.
Why does 64-bit overheat, but not 32-bit?
I mean I can play COD4 for a hour with 90%+ CPU load on 32-bit without ever going over 45C, but on 64-bit it can reach 70C IDLE!

Hi Gamepro,

did you check cpu temperature in BIOS?
BTW for AMD x2 64 processors max temp in stress ~60-65 is normal.

But at idle, 63 is too high.

It sounds like the 64-bit edition isn't properly throttling back your hardware when it's not under load...thus leaving everything at 100% and warming it all up.

Well, my system hit 200F and my AMD Athlon just about melted - So Im back to 32-bit for now and its running perfectly.
Yes, I went to BIOS but I seen NOTHING to do with the Temperature!!!
I have the latest BIOS, version 1.50 from toshiba.
How do I make it show Temperature anyways?

Im assuming this is a laptop. Have you cleaned out the fan and air channel? Mine lapbrick dropped 22F just from a thorough cleaning

It doesn't seem like this is a dirty fan issue since it's not happening in a 32-bit version of the OS.

Are you certain it's really that hot and not the sensors malfunctioning in 64-bit?

POSSIBLE. But how do you fix that?
Oh yea, the laptop is 3 months old. I dont think theres that much dust...LOL.

EDIT: Yea its a laptop
Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5928
It was only $475 so I cant really complain but theirs such a big difference between 32-bit and 64-bit...
