CPU running Hot

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.chips (More info?)

I resently installed my A7N8X-X motherboard my old mb showed my cpu
ADM athlon xp 3000+ running at lower temp but this mother board is
showing it at 41c on asus probe is that wrong becasue, i got my
external clock set at 100MHz and my multipliter is set to auto, i got
2 fans one blowing inside the case and one blowing out i can figure
whats wrong please help.

    Why do you think that's a problem?

    41C is a VERY cool running processor, absolutely nothing to worry
    about. What's more likely is that the old board was incorrectly
    reporting the temperature as being cooler than it actually is.

    FWIW these chips can run at 60-70C with no trouble at all. They're
    actually rated for somewhere between 85C and 95C, depending on the
    model, though generally speaking you want to keep a bit of a margin
    for error in there.

    thank’s for the help i got it down to 35C for the cpu and the mother
    board to 18C i think thats a little bit better that what it was at
    before becasue the cpu multiplyer is running at 1250 but it says auto
    im not sure what that auto thing does any ways thanks for the help.

    Add 10C to that temp since Asus Probe doesn't read the CPU die temp but
    the socket temp on K7 boards.

    If you really want to see the temp drop (at idle) turn on the bus
    disconnect, you can find this feature in programs like VCOOL (cool bit)
    and SpeedFan (bus disconnect).

    I get the lowest idle temps in Windows by turning HALT off and turning
    Bus Disconnect on using SpeedFan on mt A7N8X.
