    At the risk of sounding a bit unconcerned, my 1.4ghz Thunderbird Athlon usually shows 60c to 70c in Asus probe (sometimes a little higher), depending on what I'm doing and how warm the room is.

    It only has a Volcano 6 (not a 6+) heatsink/fan on it. The system is left on 7x24 and never crashes, ever. We've had brief power outages (where the lights just flicker, but don't really go out) where my monitor shuts off, and the FAX resets itself, but the computer doesn't crash (it does have an Enermax 431w power supply). The motherboard is an Asus A7A266.

    Bottom line. AMD chips are speced to operate at up to 95c, so I wouldn't worry for a second about 50c.
    Rig the vang as a preventer.

    Asus probes are notorious for giving high temp readings 10c+ above real but I've found that Volcano 6's are a little poor for highend T'birds though. 50c or under is quite acceptable for Athlons though and as it isn't crashing due to heat then you should be ok. :smokin:

    also xp's are much less tolerant of heat then T-birds
    my xp200(now deceased) would crash when asus probe read above 60...that's when i had my wbk with no case ventilation in summer lol:bounce: :bounce2: :bounce:

    The thing is that the Asus probe can't even be compared to another due to the varience with them. :(
