    Hmm... ive got a Barton core AMD AthlonXP 3000+ in this rig now, runs at around 69C surfing and heavy downloading... and peaks around 75. Ive got one 80mm exhaust fan, and an Aero V copper heatsink, running at full pelt.

    Somthing tells me this ISNT healthy.

    that's cause it isn't goldy ;)

    remove the hair from your AS3 layer between the cpu and hsf ;):D

    Ah. Re-applied heat sink, following arctic silver instructions to the LETTER, temps are now around 62C on load. whee

    62c is still really high.

    I have no idea, me not being a cooling expert, but I overlcocked my 2500+ to that with the retail HSF and it ran a little cooler, and that was overclocked...

    Well i am saturating it.. im running Bionc. My cooler isnt that bad! it got my 2000+ down to around 48C idling. im using AS 5. maybe i should try 3? Oh i dunno, ive got a massive great fan in there too for intake.. why no difference!

    Im confused.

    I ran my 2400+ at under 40c with a Volcano 6.

    Sure your cooler isn't a dud?

    Now im totally confused. Its an Aero V... full copper heat sink, blower fan, adjustable speed knob turned up to the max....

    try putting that intake into exhaust, the warm air probably doesn't have a lot of space to go to...

    ok, lets put this into context. Ambient room temperature 23.9C, Case ambient temp, 32C, processor more like 64C.

    I had similar temps with my 2800

    The only way I found to cool it was by water

    Having looked around it seems some run 40C whilst others are nearer 60C

    Manufacturing tolerences a bit adrift, but then the likes of Dell and Time dont care if it overheats in a year

    One thing you need is good airflow in and out of the case

    *falls off swivel chair*

    I have an XP 3000+ (400 fsb) currently at 2.3 Ghz. Right now while I'm typing this my CPU temp is 96F (35.5C) and at full load it MIGHT hit 102F (38.8C)

    OK this is getting completley rediculous. When saturating my CPU (running Boinc) im REGULARLY getting over 70C unless ive got a desk fan sitting next to the back of my case. What on earth should i do?? maybe i should stick a fan on the side of the case... i wanna put a window in at some point maybe that what i should do.
    BTW mine is a 333 fsb, matching my ddr 333 ram.
