I was just playing Vietcong and my CPU Temp went upto 61c is this normal! I'm only using the fan that came with the AMD Athlon XP 3000+ but it must be able to handle it because the fan is made by AMD espically for the 3000+.

What temp should I start getting worried at? Or should I start getting worried now that I just saw 61c?

Yeap it's normal with the Retail HSF, AMD CPU's can with stand up to 95C.
I would say 70C is your upmost top temp, beside if it hits that or higher i am sure your board will power down the computer when it gets to hot.

Would you recommend that I buy a better fan and heatsink for my CPU or do you think that AMD's heatsink and fan will do the job ok?

Also it seems to reach 61c in games and you think that 70c my Asus A7N8X Deluxe rev2 would shut down my system? If it would shut down at 70c then 60c can't be too great can it?

I'm very worried now! My 3000+ cost me a lot off money and I don't want it to get damaged in anyway.

If you do think that the AMD heatsink and fan are no good then what is the best money can buy that is available in the UK?

Coolermaster Aero 7+ seems to be pretty good, use it on max fan speed which isn't very loud at all 3500rpms.

So Dazz do you personally think that 61c is too hot for playing games at?

Should I buy the Cool Master fan then? My local PC World sells it?

Cooler is always better :) after when the hot days role in it will only get higher.

Hey Dazz,

What's the weather been like in your area for the past week? Or name a city near you so we can just go to weather.com and find out ourselves.

I am curious if results will vary depending on what part of the world you live in. I am sure that people who live in Alaska or Greenland don't have very many problems overclocking... hehe. ;)

Peace,

:)

My Athlon XP 2000+ stays at 58C when not doing anything intensive and jumps to 65-67 when playing games. But thats understandable because i'm using the Stock HS&F with no thermal compound and only two case fans.

Thats fairly hot that, at the moment where i live, up north it tends to be somewhat cool :)

If you've read some of my posts on CPU cooling, then you know that I use a cheap Speeze/Spire "SuperRock" on my 2500+ that I call "The SumpPump". Anyway, for the last two days, she's been as cool as my old 1700+! Currently, she's at 45c (idle) and hits 49-50c while at full load.

Then again...the weather here is overcast with a temp of 70F and the forecast states tonight's low will be in the mid 60s. Leather jacket weather outside, pretty much! Got a box fan in the window set to low which is keeping my ambient temp around 72-75C. That's helping my CPU stay cool. :)

Oh, but when the weather is Hazy, Hot, & Humid with heat indices in the high 90s...my CPU broils at 60-65 at full load. :(

Slightly OC'd to 1.6 ghz , and I run around 32 c , 39c under load.

At stock speeds, its 30c , 35 under load.

AMD 1700 ( palamino ) , with a SK-7 Thermalright HSF , w/ a Tt Smartfan II @ 4200 rpm ( check the sig for more info )


Just to throw in my 2 cents. This combo of the sk-7 and smartfan II works really well for me, and it was a reasonable price to pay.

not to say my computer is a cucumber. but it runs pretty cool. I am running on a stock fan that came with the processor

amd 1800 xp
512 mb 266mhz ram - not heat sinked
gigabyte ati 9800 pro 256mb
80 gig WD hard drive
epox motherboard
dvd/cdrw combo drive
alluminum case with 2 case fans

the computer typically runs at 41c on non load and about 48 or 50c on load. good enough for me when the temps reach more then 80 degrees in my room. probably the alluminum cases fault. :)

Keeping my Thoroughbred-B 2400+ at 2.2 GHz (3200+) gives me between 38-43 idle and 47-52 at load. This is completely dependent on the temperature upstairs in my house. If it's hot, humid my temps will be at the upper bound, if it's cooler I'll be at the lower bound. My system is perfectly fine at those temps.

Ok everyone I just thought that I should keep you updated on my progress, well today I installed the

CoolerMaster Aero 7+

and wow did it make a difference now in games I don't go over 50c but before with my AMD fan on my Amd Athlon 3000+ I went upto 65c then I was too scared to play my games. Idle the temp is 40c!

This fan is amazing not only does it look real pretty but the performance is great and it's not very noisy espcially when i'm playing games I don't hear a thing with my 5.1 Digitheatre LOL.

So there you have it the CoolerMaster Aero 7+ has saved me, I'm now a huge fan off what this fan can do!

Runnning my xp1700 TbredB at 2.2 Ghz at 40C idle and anywhere between 50C to 55C at load. I have a Galaxy GC88 fan and two case fans blowing directly on the CPU and the other on the video card.
