Could you please tell me your CPU temp as indicated by the Bios after your computer has been on for an hour. Ambiant temp should be between 22-26C.

My temp is 58C @ idle, 67C under load, (I'm worried!!)No crashes though.

My TB 1.4 ran much hotter than any of the XPs I've owned. If I remember correctly, it ran at 57c at idle at 63c under load on my Gigabyte board. It was about 4 degrees cooler on my Shuttle.

Thats pretty normal for those thunderbirds. Could get an all copper heatsink but really those tbirds are desinged to burn pretty damn hot.
