    Firstly I would like to apologise to both Soverign and TismeDT for not replying thier questions in an earlier post about Athlon 1700XP Temps.

    I am running an ASUS A7V266E mobo and an Athlon 1700XP.

    My temps are 52 idle and 62 underload according to ASUS Probe.

    My HSF is a JUST COOLER which has a huge arse heat sink with an 80mm fan which has specs of 38cfm. Noise levels of a quiet 28db. My temps are very extreme and I have read where someone stated that ASUS Probe can deliver temperatures of up to 10 degrees or more out of range.

    Maybe my HSF is doing an ok job after all.??? Who knows

    What can I use to check the temperatures?? Is it the actual thermometre on the motherboard that has the problem or is it just the program. Please tell me how I can get a more accurate reading.

    i've also heard that ASUS probe can report unrealisticaly high temperatures when they are really a fair bit lower...this may or may not be true in your case...but i'd add at least one case fan just to be safe.

    If the computer is't crashing...whats there to worry about anyway ?

    I have 2 80mm case fans installed in a push/pull system.

    My computer isn't crashing so I am not "too" worried. But I will try a mates HSF (FOP38) and see how it goes. if it don't make much difference then i won't worry

    You have heard right, the Asus probe can often be way out. Even so, it could also be reading from the XP's thermal diode which should be reasonably accurate. I reckon your Athlon XP shouldn't really be pushing much past 50-55deg under load. Those big Just cooler HSF's (is yours the one with the anodised heatsink) aren't particularly flash, I'd suggest getting a Thermaltake Volcano 7 - it has a copper base, 80mm fan for quietness and its own thermal diode to regulate the fan speed (it speeds up if its too hot). That's my two cents anyways......

    I'm running a volcano 7 in an enermax 710b case with 2 rear case fans and I get 46 deg at idle and 53 deg looping 3dmarkse.with out the case fans it was running at 53 idle and 60 under load. I'm using an asus ipanel and the asus probe together and they are usually within 1 deg of each other.I'm not sure if the ipanel is that accurate either tho.

    oh and my last board was a a7a266-e and there is an issue with big heatsinks and the capacitors on the borad. if you are careful you can just manuver it enough to get it in. also if it helps anyone the leadtek boards foul on a cap on the board too. I've checked the 4400 and the 4600 and it causes the board to lean over slightly.

    I much prefer the Volcano 7+ but have you tried this mod, http://www.extremeoverclocking.com/a...ano7Tip_1.html , also the temp bulb can be cut off all together and the 2 wires joined together for constant full speed fan operation.
    The 2 rear case fans are for exhausting hot air from the case but there are also 2 front fan positions for air intake which if filled with fans should help you more. ;)

    it certainly works if you cut the sensor off but i found just putting the sensor in the bottom of the heatsink had little effect.
