AthlonXP 1700+ (Palomino core)
Room Temperatures = 27°C - 33°C
Chip Temperatures = 40°C - 42°C
CPU Temperatures (Idle) = 52°C - 55°C
CPU Temperatures (Load) = 57°C - 62°C
The reason my temperatures are that high even when it's running at 1.1GHz, is due mostly to the summer temperatures I get here where I live. But it's also due to the various fans being throttled down for more quiet operation.
I estimate my Coolermaster XDream HSF to be running at maybe 25% to 40% capacity, so thats about 3000RPM to 3500RPM (4800RPM max). And my 2 adjustable Enermax case fans at maybe 75% capacity, about 2500RPM each (max of 3000RPM). All fans are 80mm of course
Temperature would have been much much higher too, if I had simply placed my primary intake fan on the lower part of the front. Instead, I ripped open an 80mm hole in two 5.25" bay covers & slapped on my Enermax fan. Temperatures dropped on average by about 5°C after that.
I'm going to get you.
