Re: how do I know if CPU temperature exceed max limit

That doesn't sound right. A typical maximum junction temperature for
most semiconductors would be about 200C. 80C might be right for the
maximum temperature for the heatsink area on the CPU package, which in
those days would probably be the whole top of the case.
(sorry, this question isn't debian specific)
I have a P3/550, SECC2
I get its manual from Intel
It says max T junction is 80 C
The motherboard BIOS reports CPU temperature
but is the reported value equal to T junction?
A junction temperature of 80C would imply a heatsink temperature of
about 20C-30C, which would be difficult to maintain, and probably no
more than about 10MHz clock speed. Doesn't sound like a P3.
