    Hi<P>yesterday i bought an AMD Thunderbird 800mhz, Asus A7V KT133 , SDRAM DIMM 128Mb PC133 ,Big Tower Case and a MasterCooler fan.<P>Im having too high temperatures on idle or playing<BR>Im using win98 with asus PC probe 2 to monitor temperatures.<P>Case Closed IDLE:<BR>CPU: 60ºC or about 144F<BR>MB: 51 or about 123F<P>With the case open and my girlfriend playing The sims - livin large: <IMG SRC="http://www.guru3d.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>CPU: 55ºC or about 131F<BR>MB: 43ºC or about 109F<P>I already changed the pc133 for pc100 and the temperature also rises, so thats not the problem (i was expecting that but who knows?)<P>What could cause this so high temps?<BR>Im not overclocking and im using jumperfree. i left all the default voltages intact.<P>What could be causing this extremely high temps?<P>Thanks <IMG SRC="http://www.guru3d.com/ubb/frown.gif"><BR>
  2. Could be anything. Why don't you re-attach the cooler ? perhaps it's not properly fitted on there. Useually such an increase of heat is caused by voltage boosting (vcore) I myself run a Thunderbird 700 @ 850 MHz right now, i boosted the vcore towards 1.775 & 3.40 volts. With my silver orb the idle temperature still is 31 degrees C.<P>Consider buying some thermal past, place a drop on the cpu and install that heatsink again <IMG SRC="http://www.guru3d.com/ubb/smile.gif">

    I got the vcore at 1.68 v i guess and i think the cooler is well attached<P>if it is a cooler problem would the mobo temperature rise so high as well? wouldnt be only the CPU?<P>i made some more tests using only a geforce and monitoring the temp in the BIOS hardware monitor<P>no HD's no nothing only a geforce with board sides of the case untached<P>cpu 50<BR>mb 38<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.guru3d.com/ubb/frown.gif"><P>tomorrow i'll go to the vendor change the parts :| f**k...its always the same thing <IMG SRC="http://www.guru3d.com/ubb/frown.gif"><P>

    Perhaps the air flow in the case is not correctly "configured" and the air is not circulating well.

    The uper thinks its your air flow in the case. You must have a good air flow. Make sure you have a fan on the front at the bottom of your case and a fan on the back at the top. Also make sure your wires are not blocking off your air flow. If they are, wire them out of the way. Make sure you have the right fan for your processor. If your system is still hot, invest in some new fans for your processor and Video Card. They will give you big heat problems.<BR>===============================================<P>------------------<BR>Don't fear, the 7uper is here!
