Hello all!! One of my friends told me that my XP was possibly running too hot. It generally runs at around 93F or higher. Right now, with AOL running, it's at 98F. What worries me is what will happen when I start gaming after I get my Radeon 7500 Monday? Do I have need to be concerned? I've got a Volcano 6 on the chip and 2 Enermax case fans... one on front and one on the back. It seems that I shouldn't be having problems, and I very well may not be, but should I be concerned? Thanks in advance.

In Christ Jesus,

Brandon

Hey guys!! I didn't think it was, but he said that his Athlon 1.4 ran in the 70's and XP's were supposed to be cooler, so I thought I'd make sure. Thanks guys!!

That would be my guess. 70*C ~ 158*F. You're running about half as cool as he is. 70*C is a bit high, actually its really high. Tell him he needs better cooling.
