    Hi

    Just a quick question. Am I in danger of damaging my processor. It is an Athlon 1700XP. The running temps are 55c @ idle and under full load it gets to MAX 63c

    It won't kill your processor but I'd be reckon you'd be aimming for temps a bit lower than that.

    I have the XP 1600+ and my case is aufuly cramped (getting new one tomorow) and i was getting temps of around 55c give or thake 5c, that was with a huge ass heatsink and fan and it was some what unstable.
    So i mounted my power supply externally and put in 2 intake fans, one pointing stragiht at the heatsink from the side and now i get 44c.

    You'd really want to be somewhere around the 40deg mark whilst idle, I'd suspect your cooling is inadequate. Thermaltake Volcano 7 runs AthlonXP's at that sort of temp, you should be able to pick one up for about $50

    I have run a volcano 6cu+ on a 1700+ and had temps around 34c @ idle. they cost about $15us. Though it is noisy. The fan runs at 7000 rpm and you know its working thats for sure

    I have the noise-problem too and I can't stand it any longer...
    does anyone know a reliable fan for a 1700XP which is
    known to be quite silently ... I use the machine as desktop
    machine and that noise isn't tolerably anymore

    thanx

    I Have a 1900+ sitting at 46 idle 55 under load

    Cooling
    SK6 with 4000rpm 60mm fan,
    80mm case fan running at 2000rpm
    and a slot extractor fan don't know the speed but it's very quiet.

    512mb Crucial DDR 266
    Creative labs TI4600

    all running very stable

    The only problem I get is with dust buildup in the heatsink and it can be fixed with a quick blast of air duster.


    The Athlons max temperature is 90 degrees according to the Spec.

    90 degrees is the max temp for athlon cpu b4 they start to fry:cry:

    an athlonxp will usually run about 60 degress or just over b4 it bcomes unstable:afro:

    btw comparing cpu temps isn't such a fine art as reading can vary a fair bit from mobo to mobo:afro: but usually they will be within say 5 degrees of each other...asus boards are renowned for reading higher than usual....heck i get mid 40 loads and i have a mcx462....which is still the best air cooler around..altohguh monstrously expensive:cheers:
