    Question Its Getting Hot in Here,

    Was Wondering if any 1 can tell me is this to Hot for a 1.2Ghz AMD Athlon

    I’m getting Temps of
    Board Temperature : 28.7°C / 74.7°F
    CPU Temperature : 62.8°C / 123.4°F

    This sounds a tad High for a 1.2Ghz???
    Fan is a cool master and is running @ 4383rpm
    What do the People think?

    I've only started looking at the temp as I think this mite be why my pc has started to crash recently,

    Thanks....

    Hummm ? If you think that’s ok temp wise...

    What do u think it could be? Why my comp keeps Crashing?

    I just tried to update the bios but it told me it didn't work when i flashed it, but when i re-started the comp the bios tells me is the new version ???

    But comp still crashes after about 45 minutes

    imo, that's way too high

    50C and under is acceptable

    up to 55C is OK if all is stable

    anything over that and you're looking at problems, inc. crashes

    I've experienced systems crashing when they hit around 57C, so temps in the 60's are to be avoided

    true, those old Athlons ran hot, but I ran an overclocked 1.2 and managed to keep it at 48C or so

    as mentioned previously, remount cooler on CPU using some decent thermal compound and consider some extra or more powerful case fans

    I only put HSF and chip in, about 3 months ago..
    so its all clean and its got CPU Thermal Grease... So i think that should be ok.

    I got the Fan from my mate who said it would be fine for my 1.2 Athlon ...?
    Its a Cooler Master DP5-6H51 if that helps? Is this HSF ok for this chip

    There are a lot of factors that affect CPU temp. Not the least being room temperature and ventilation around the case.

    It really wouldn't hurt to remount that cooler. Clean everything up first with meths or isopropyl alcohol, take your time, spread a thin coating of thermal compound on CPU core and make absolutely sure cooler heatsink base is spotlessly clean.

    Maybe re-tension cooler mounting bracket by bending with pliers to give more downward tension.

    And also, as suggested by Class, clean case of all dust bunnies.

    Do you have any case fans? One exhausting should be minimum. And using cable ties to get all cables out the way, or using rounded cables helps, improves the airflow.

    By the sound of things, the HSF you have isn't rated to your CPU (ignore manufacturers guidelines for upto 1.4Ghz etc) or the thermal paste used is non existant.

    Check the thermal paste first as that doesn't cost you anything, if its not then get yourself to maplins - a nice HSF which should be fine for your system for £3.79.
