Normal CPU Temperature for AMD

What is the normal idle temperature for an AMD 2000+ CPU?

I have this PC that is constantly just shutting off, and we believe its the CPU overheating, since we've already replaced the Power Supply, and the problem is still occuring.

If you know the temp settings that would be helpful, or if you know what the possible problem could be that would also help.

Thanks!

I've heard of unstability over 60º so I would say it varies ALOT. Get a good Volcano fan on it, or Just get a decent fan. If it's still doing that after u put a good fan on it, you might have a Bad CPU or MB.

Based on the information at this web site, http://www.cpuscorecard.com/cpuprices/aaxp.htm, 90 degrees C is the maximum.  I'm trying to find the page, but Tom's Hardware had listed CPUs and their temp ranges and FROM MEMORY, I THINK the AMD 2000+ was to run at ~70-75 under normal conditions.  But I'd suggest getting a REAL GOOD heat sink and fan.  Some chips might just have problems running hotter.

I was running at high 70s, which I figured meant something was wrong... took it of, cleaned it and reseated it and it's running at about 55 now, sometimes 59...  seems that was the issue!

Thanks guys!
