    Default Whats a Good CPU Temperature????

    I Have a AMD Athlon XP 2100+ running on a ga-7kvmp-p Gigabyte motherboard. It has a volcano 9 cooler running at 3000rpm and the cpu temp is about 50-60 while the system temp is about 55-65. When i get it working hard it gets to the 70's.

    How does this sound? I am having stability issues so could this be a cause?

    thank for any help

    We had like 6 posts about this last week... there is a search function.

    but the rules say we must be nice, so....

    50-60 is a bit high, you should maybe get some airflow by adding fans or a blowhole.

    Everybody else will probably say the same thing.

    My XP1800 runs at 45C while surfing, hosting a dc hub, cruising dc, and running MSN and a firewall.

    everybody else will probably say the same thing.

    Thanks for being nice
    I have a system fan already which is running about 2000rpm sucking air out of the case, i have set all jumpers right and have renewed the thermal paste so i suppose its a cpu fault somewhere. sigh.. nothing a few $$ will fix.

    thanks

    The problem appears to be your case temp. Do you have it sitting in a hotwater cupboard?
    The CPu fan relies on blowing COOLER air over the heatsink. Without cooler air, you will not drop the CPU temp.
    Try it with the side cover off. If it improves greatly, look at your airflow for your case.

    Those temps aren't unusual

    One of my PC's is XP2100 and runs to 55 after game and about 40 just surfing. MOBO is a Gigabyte GA-7VA, standard "packaged" fan. Utilise cpuidle which drops the "low-use temp" quite a bit.
    So that is what I am going off.

    If you've got decent cooling then yeah you could expect yours a bit lower. But our warm ambient temperatures lately will contribute to his slightly higher temp

    Same as mine, except when it gets up high, it dies.

    I recently (carefully) installed a Celeron (approx. 2GHz) in a school server - it seems to run at next to no load at about 50 degrees which surprised me.
