Another? for yas. I can't find in my mb manual or on amd's site, ( I have a 900mhz amd athlon.) So wondering where to find out or if you guys know what temp it shoud run at about idle speed. Wondering if my heatsink and fan is working well and if it is good enough thanks in advance.
I don't really know to much about chip temp. specs. off the top of my head I will look around though....I would venture a guess and say 120 is running hot especially if its idle. Ill get back to you with some fact and not a guess though.
room temp is 75, mid tower soon to get antec full tower, have side of case open and 80mm in back and front small fan for hdd fan on vid card chipset fan, dual fans on psu and the cpu fan which is a cooler master CP5-7H53F not huge but plan on getting a copper hs one with faster fan
I'm not really what you would call a "parts guy" I build computers but don't really stay up on the latest thing until I go out to get it, so I'm not really the one that should be answering this, but I believe that others here (you know who you are) are very fluent in what your looking for, I'm sure they'll be along before to long.
I am running a full Aopen Tower with standard fans on a AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53 Ghz, 512 DDR ram, Leadtek GeForce 2 GTS Pro 64 DDR card and right at this moment SSandra says my CPU is running at 114 degrees. If that is any help for ya. Usually when I am gaming online with a ton of People in the room on Quake 3 it will get up to 121 degrees, but not usually higher than that.
