    My Xp1700+ runs at around 42C under load with an Alpha PAL8045 & a 50cfm fan - case temp around 27C/ambient 23-25C
    It ran a little cooler with the 80cfm Delta - but not enough warrant the noise in my opinion.

    I would think a Volcanoe7+ would be capable of at least matching the performance of an Alpha.

    I think it would too RDR as I got those same temps when I ran my XP1800+ at stock speed on medium fan speed (runnin' @ XP2100+ now though but still on medium until room temps hit 30c). ;)

    For the Swedish gent running a 1200 with a Swiftech 462 and still getting 60c+......I'd be a bit concerned that you don't have the hsf installed right. My 1333@1537 never got over about 45c in a room at 28c. I had to NOT install the small lug washers that fit thru the mobo so that it would make correct contact with the core...the holes in the mobo were too small for the washers and lifted the hsf above the core so that the correct pressure could not be applied...and the riht pressure IS VERY IMPORTANT....I just put the bolts thru the mobo with a small piece of tape insulating them.....the instructions for installation warn about some mobo mounting holes being too small.
    The older I get...the better I was

    I get 70C running Morrowind sometimes.

    I know this is a major problem. I'm purchasing a Volcano 7+ heatsink to replace my Dragon Orb 1, and I'm not sure what fan I'm gonna put on the heatsink. I'm going to apply Artic Silver 3 to my heatsink.

    I have also bought 2 more CompUSA brand case fans, but I might just buy two Vantec Stealth case fans and give my brothers the CompUSA brand case fans.

    First I have to make two new holes in my case because I don't have anywhere else to put my CompUSA fans.

    ya those temps are pretty high. Do you have any sorta ventilation in your case? Other then a PSU fan? Cuase if you have no kinda ventiliation then the fan on your HSF will be doing nothing but circulating hot air. Also when you say xp/mp/4 you do relize that, that is 3 different processors right? Which one do you have? The AthlonXP 1900+ the AthlonMP 1900+ or the Athlon4 1.6GHz?
