Thread: AMD Athlon 2100+ temp

    I've got an AMD Athlon 2100+ CPU and I've got nearly 50C all the time, peaking 56C after a 3D game session.
    I've got the boxed AMD CPU and another three fans (plus the power supply unit fan); this is my case air flow configuration:
    two fans on the case front (bottom) that pump air into the case (5000 rpm, 80mm), one tachimetric fan on the back of the case (usually running at 2000-2500 rpm) and the power supply fan (on the top of the back), both pumping air out from the case.

    The CPU fan is mounted pumping air to the CPU: is this the right way or I have to reverse the CPU fan?

    What are good AMD Athlon 2100+ temp?

    And finally, I've got a Biosta MKVIP motherboard that has no case temp sensor: how can I acquire that value?

    Thanks!

    The retail HSF's arn't real good and if ya go out and get a good full copper one like the Volcano 7+ ya temps should improve a great deal.

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    OK, thanks.

    Another question: does the CPU fan pump air to the core or from the the CPU core?

    Wiggo it fits a standard 90MM fan and you can get more CFM than the 7+ and same noise (on medium)...it all depends on the fan you choose
