I booted up my home-built PC for the first time. The mobo is an Abit BD-7 RAID and the CPU is a Northwood 1.8 Ghz. I am using the thermaltake P4 478 Volcano heatsink. At idle, (in the BIOS) i am getting 39 degrees Celsius. I have two antec fans that came with my case. Is this temp okay.
The best way to set up a case is with at least two fans pulling air in at the front of the case and two at the rear
blowing hot air out. Your temps are high. Recheck your heatsink mount. If you take it off clean off the thermal pad and use artic silver.
