For the past couple of years I have been using an AMD Athlon 2000+ (Palomino) processor and a Thermaltake Volcano 8 which was running at 3800rpm which gave a Temp reading of 48C idle and 49C full load. I now managed to get a cheap AMD Athlon 3200+ (Barton) processor and a TR2-M3 SE (Thermaltake) fan which runs at 2519rpm (I wanted a less noisy fan as the Volcano was like the space shuttle taking off!!!!) but my new CPU runs at 55C idle and 61C full load (running Prime95 torture test for 25mins). Does these temps sound ok? I did hear from a mate that Bartons run cooler than Palominos and was expecting a lower full load temp of 61C.
