Athlon XP-M @ 2.53 Ghz

Hey, guys, I have this old-ish rig (Shuttle SN41G2v3) that has a Barton Athlon XP-M (S462) clocked at 2.53 Ghz.
Here's the specs of it:
Shuttle FN41SP motherboard
2.53 Ghz Athlon XP-M Barton 130nm (3600-3800+ speeds) at 1.825 V
512 MB PC-3200 (sucks, I know)
Windows XP Home SP3
Quantam Fireball 30 GB (God-awful, need an upgrade really soon)
Shuttle I.C.E. Heatpipe Cooler
Antec Tricool 80mm
GeForce4 MX IGP (upgrading to a 7800 GS very soon)
Shuttle PC40N250EV 250 W PSU

So, now that you've seen my suck-ish rig, here's the results under load (Burn-In 2008, no error checking)
Sys: 47 C
CPU: 57 C
PWM: 63 C

Just a little intro post, I figure I may as well post my results.

  1. Oh, yeah. If anyone knows if I can run this at a lower voltage, please let me know. I'd like to run this at a lower temp.

    Believe it or not, this heatsink does have AS5 on it.

    well lower the voltage by one notch and test for stability and tell us if it worked. Since each cpu is a little different in terms of quality, each one will actually be able to run at slightly different voltages and certain clocks so no one person can say for sure if this will run at lower volts
  3. It's currently running at 2.53 Ghz and 1.8 V, at about 50 C. The only reason it runs so hot for being an XP-M is because I'm using Shuttle's Socket 462 I.C.E. Heatpipe cooler with some AS5.
