    Yeah, I did use Arctic Silver III, it's pretty cool stuff. I even went to thier website for how they recommend putting the compound on, and followed those instructions. I used the edge of a credit card to even it out in a thin layer too.

    About you using half the tube, maybe you thought more was better at the time. ;) j/k Thanks for the help. Take care!

    well what can i say --- i followed the saying more is better, but it seems less is infact more !!!!!!

    You may also want to get a funnel type duct coming from a case panel to the top of the hsf

    of just a couple of case fans to get cool air into the case so that the hsf is not sucking warm air onto the hs, instead it sucks cool air, that should take a few 'c off and help the system run more smoothly

    oh yes it would have done that alright, my first cpu blew at 97'c and took out the mobo to, 50 - 60 'c is still quite hot. i am only running a duron at just over 1ghz but its only 31'c on full load.

    thermatake dragon ord cooler .... excellent

    I'm very suprised that it didn't fry my Athlon XP! I thought these CPUs hit death at 75C hehe :laugh: But it seems to be working good now. I can loop 3DMark2001SE several times and not have a hiccup, and get good scores. I think it should be ok. Glad I didn't have to send this proc back to for a new one. :p

    :rolleyes:

    Actually the threshold for Athlon/Duron fryin' starts at 95c and that's from AMD themselves. :smokin:

    Thanks for the info Wiggo, I'll keep that in mind ;)

    Yeah, I did take pics of my system, but it's with a regular camera, I don't have a digi camera yet. So I have to finish with the roll of film then get it developed. I'll scan the pics and post 'em soon I hope. Even though I went with rounded cables and all, it's still a bit of a mess with all the wires, lol.

    No mods yet, except for a baybus for my fans.

    I'll b sure to check out your pics dazza b

    Thanks guys :cheers:

    BTW

    Does 53-54C sound like a decent temp for internal die temp at full load on my proc? My room was around 30C when I tested and got this temp.

    I hate how hot my room gets in the summer :mad:

    It should be alot better in the winter though ;) :thumb:

    Actually it soundin' quite alright from all reports of the internal core sensor that I've seen so far (from mobo's that support this feature) the temps that I'm getting from my XP's underside resistors seem to be closer to acurate than the old backside readings of the T'birds and so long as ya gettin' no stability probs may just be ok. ;)
