    Just a quick check, im running a XP2800+ on a Asus A7N8X Deluxe Mobo, cant raise the multiplier as it shows as a 836 mhz cpu so iv put up the FSB to 178mhz memeory is Crucial 2700 sync to that clock speed. Anyway im using PC Prob and my Idle temp is 47c while using PC for net and stuff and using sisoftsandra 2004 on a burn test 100% for 50 times is at 54c how do thoes temps sound? My HSF is a Akasa Silver Mountain 2.

    Well that sounds OK. But:
    What kind of thermal paste did you use? Arctic Silver3 or similar pastes lower the CPU tems a little.
    Whats the temp of the room? if its on the warm side, your temps will go up.
    also running pc3200 memory will probably help you overclock more. :thumb:

    Juts silver paste that came with a other HSF, I didnt use the white paste that came with the Silver Mountain 2 didnt seem to spead thin and even. Im just running another test as before and this time using both CPU tests in sandra its at 55c after 42 runs.

    Dont know what room temp is but its cold and I have a light fan so thats keeping that ok.


    I asume these Burn test are even going behond normal CPU usage such as games and video work.

    easy test to see if you have a good air circulation in your case is to take off the side.
    If the temps go down, you could improve the airflow.
    If they go up, than your airflow is good. :thumb:
