    good cpu temp for 2000+???

    I have the xp 2000+ and was just wondering what a safe temp for one of these is, sometimes mine hits 62 F with it clocked at 1.8ghz, this seems a bit high, but what do i know

    A lot of experienced users say 60C is MAX safe temp, regardless of AMD specs.

    You don't say if 62C is a idle or load temp?

    Suggest AX7, SLK 800 or other good HS if you're overclocking.

    It's very common for motherboards to inaccurately gauge the CPU temps. Having said that, my motherboard reveals that my 1700+ is at 60. No random reboots or system problems so I haven't made any changes.

    Generally, I'll be happy with selling a system (or just building one for someone) if the max temp is 65*C or lower, preferably under 60*C, but it doesn't really matter as long as the system runs perfectly stable.

    MSI, btw, usually reports temps a little high, or at least they used to.

    I'm using the Volcano 7+ on my setup and i sit at a temp of 39C with it on the lowest fan setting. On high, it stays at about 31-32C. Damn good cooler...but so are my other 8 case fans....

    yeah, so i've heard, what case fans are you using? I could use some myself...any specific good ones, or do any 80mm fans do the same job as the next, cause i need like 6 more in my box.

    I was quite worried about my AMD 2100+ running at 53*C according to the bios, but I am not after reading pdf's on AMD's website.

    According to AMD, the bios on almost all MoBo's running AMD procs and software such as Motherboard Monitor give a temperature 30*C (+/-) more than the actual temp. I don't know how this is possible, but they say it is. And what's more, all AMD's from the Duron up through XP have a die temperature between 90-95*C. The average bios temperature for an Athlon XP 2100+, according to them, is 65*C, so I now know I am perfectly safe and significantly under normal limits. Hopefully this will reassure others, too.

    Just to let you know, I have a Thermaltake Volcano 9 running at 1300 RPMs (lowest setting) and two case fans that run under 2000. All quiet here.

    Are you sure about that? and can you quote the actual pdf. Last I read was the opposite, that is that most motherboards somewhat under-report the core temperature due the the proximity (or lack thereof) of the thermistor.
