What is the normal and max operating temp of an AthlonXP 1900? The AMD Tech Bulleting shows max socket temp of 90°C. I am having funny performance problems which I am beginning to think are hardware related, and the Asus utilities show my temp right now as 88°C. Did I fry/ am I frying my processor?
Your temps are way too high. You have not fried your cpu yet, but you will if you dont fix the problem. Make sure your fan is spinning properly, clean out the heat sink, and make sure the hsf is not installed wrong way round.
