Im running a athlon xp 2500+ barton on a K7N2 Ultra - L mobo with a 7000 rpm fan and a copper heatsink with artic silver 2. Ive got four case fans excluding the power supply fan (2 for the hdd blowing in, 1 blowing onto the processor from the side and one blowing out at the back). Despite my best efforts, my cpu was still running at 50-55 in an air conditioned environment with the side panel off.


However, not too long ago i flashed my bios and the temps were in the mid 30's. Apparently, especially for newer boards, the bios versions may not be reading the temps from the board like theyre suppose to. So, for all those persons who get strange temperature problems which they cant fix, this might be a possible problem. Otherwise, you can go with the usual fixes like change in the thermal paste to artic 3, sticking in some fans in the case etc
