    Athlon XP 2000+ Temp issues. I think....

    Hi...

    I was going through my old PC equipment and fouind.. a Chaintech 7vJL Deluxe and 512meg mem and a Athlon XP 2000+. I had an old case with no sides... I put it all together and all is running pretty well. Not OCing or anything... yet.

    One thing I noticed was that the CPU was running about 63c degrees.

    I reapplied Artic Silver 3 (all I had) I'm using a generic cooler.. had to use a low profile one since the PSU is mounted wierd in this case. Now the CPU is running about 55c and 58c under load.

    Are these temps too high to run all the time?
    This machine is just for testing and normal internet... no gaming or anything elaborate.

    Anyway... I know 90c is too high... but was wondering if ~57c was too high for everyday.

    THANKS

    THanks for the quick response!!
    It HAS been a while.
    I am running an Athlon 64 3200 Venice... it runs about 43c.
    So I was curious about the older Athlon.

    THANKS

    If the mainboard is measuring and displaying actual CPU die temperature, then 55-60 Celsius is absolutely harmless. As you said yourself, 90C is the threshold.

    Must be a palomino chip,they run between 50C and 65C depending on room temperatures.
    Ofcourse a better hsf with a bigger fan on top will cool even better,you could get in the low 40C.
