  1. That's about 52C. Quite hot, but not extreme. Actually the max temp is 95C, but anything over 60 is getting pretty bad.

    Try to get it to between 35C and 45C.

  2. 35oC on a 1.4GHz Athlon is next to impossible without watercooling, a Switftech MCX or MC HSF, or the Alpha PAL8045.

    :tongue: Have you ever tried cooking an egg on your HSF? Tasty. :tongue:
  3. apparently not, in a cool room, and with some good case circulation..but then again, that is when it is idle...and an athlonxp.....

  4. I've got a 1.0ghz Tbird running at 1.5ghz (150*10, 1.87 volts). It's been running seti@home (command-line version) for 7 hours at 41 degrees max. Using Toast, burn-in program, I'm seeing 44 degree peaks.

    There are coolers that do better but the great thing is I'm using a $4.50 cooler. (OK it was a $4.50 cooler but I upgraded it with a 38CFM Delta fan). The cooler I'm using is a Galaxy GC21 which I picked up at <A HREF="http://www.nexfan.com" target="_new">http://www.nexfan.com</A> as sort of a backup up cooler. (The $4.50 is a promotional price. Normal price $15.00). I chose it because it has a rare clip which uses all six tabs on the socket instead of just two. The GC21 heatsink is identical to a Volcano 5 unit (except for the clip) and has Galaxy's own 27 CFM fan by default. That fan works well but the Delta ... In factory trim the GC21 is about 5 degrees warmer.

    I recommend this cooler for anyone that is worried about breaking one the tabs on their CPU socket with their present cooler. Add a Delta fan for some pretty good overclocking.

  5. Impressive overclock!

    My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek: .
  6. :)

    The Epox 8KTA3PRO and the Tbird AYHJAR-Y, week 36, are an impressive combination. I haven't had any crashes in the 2-3 weeks I've owned these, at least not at 1500mhz. I can obtain that speed at only 1.87 volts core. When I push the voltage to 2.25 (reads as 2.28), which is the factory max of this board, I can get it to POST at 1755, 130*13.5 (yes I know that's an FSB underclock). 1580 is the highest I can go and actually do anything useful. It doesn't seem to crash even at that speed but the BIOS overclock protection seems to be finicky at boot-up and sometimes won't POST at that speed. On the other hand, the protection helps the system recovery nicely from too much overclocking. Just a RESET and the system is back in business. Once I can get past POST it seems alright.

    I find this pretty amazing considering I'm running air-cooled with just average case fans (2) and the Delta fan for the CPU, all in a very, small (17-1/2 x 8 x 17"), mid-tower case.

  7. I hope to get good OC result with my Tbird 1.4 GHz AYHJA core and my Abit KG7-RAID, I also have PC2400 RAM for FSB overclocking and I'm working at a watercooler with peltier.
    But getting so high with only aircoolong is very impressive.

  8. ...Just looking at the <A HREF="http://www.overclockers.com" target="_new">www.overclockers.com</A> CPU database. Looks like the AYHJA 1.4's overclock very nicely averaging 1608mhz. There's even a claim of 2100, air-cooled. (That claim is a bit suspicious). Also some nice KG7 overclocks.

    Good luck with your water cooling project.

  9. That's why I bought the AYHJA and the KG7.
    But I've a new problem now... I fried my CPU when testing my watercooler :frown: and I need a new one, but 1.4 AYHJA are rare to get so I will buy a XP, don't no which one yet, any suggestions.

    My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek: .
  10. In case you didn't see my earlier post in the CPU forum, I have an AYHJA I'm not using if you're interested.
