    Hot Duron 800MHz?...

    I have an 800 MHz Duron nestled on a Giga-Byte GA-7ZM Mobo.

    Last time I checked the temp the CPU was @ 59 degrees Celseus. Nothing was open or running on the system except windows 2000 pro.

    Would anyone recommend a new heat sink and fan. Is this to hot for the CPU??? My system is supoose to shutdown @ 70 degrees.

    Would any recommend a better heatsink and fan for me?

    thank.

    GlobalWin WBK38 works flawlessly on my Duron 800@1 Ghz with a temp of 38 degree idle & 45 full load. I fully recommend it.

    The GlobalWin FOP32-1 will work just fine. Most of the coolers listed above are a bit overkill and use the Delta 38CFM fan which is VERY NOISY. These include the FOP38, WBK38, and probably every cooler Shinma said (unless you stick with the stock fan on the Thermal Engine). My Duron 600 shipped witha Cooler Master peice of junk heatsink/fan that kept it a toasty 55-60'C at stock voltage and speed. I slapped in a FOP32-1 and bumped it up to 900Mhz. It runs about 25'C at idle (thanks to CPUCool) and runs about 38'C under full load (with a 20'C room temp). Thats 20'C cooler when overclocked 50%. Hugh differance and my Duron will do 950, but I dont' see the point when I am still using a Voodoo3 (and enjoying it after over 2 years). Some day I will have to replace it, but not untill around Christmas when the GeForce3 gets a make over and some compitition hit the market (Radeon2, Kyro3...)

    Black label Delta's spinning at 7000 rpm are known to cause deafness, premature balding, and mental imbalances.
    Damn, I run dozers ,loaders, and excavators for a living and I still think my Delta is loud.

    GW WBK38 is kick *** it should bring your temps down by 10C at minimum if you use some good grease with it you should get down some more C's

    Great Link Davidstone and great advice ToddA. I have my duron 600 overclocked to 950 but my temps are not as good as yours Todd. Where can I get that CpuCool program Todd A?

    I think that is the symptoms that is happening to me now
    I would say I could have become deaf first if I were you handling the dozers without any ear piece

    If noise is an issue get a Taisol 760CGK and run it with the stock delta fan. The stock fan is made by delta and measures 60x10mm not 60x25mm like the 7000 rpm one. It is much quieter and the taisol should keep you below 40C under load.
