I've recently put together a Jetway Via mobo with this chip.
In Sandra 2001 i'm getting a cpu temp of 53c, fan speed 6027rpm, and mobo temp of 37c.
And all I'm doing is sitting on the web posting !
The fan that came with the chip is a "Thermal Master". There was also what I assume was some thermal paste on the under side of the heatsink (white stuff, vaguely sticky...I don't even want to think about it, heh !). There was also something that looked like a bit of thin, hard plastic.
I think I've fitted the heatsink etc. on properly, so are these temps normal for this PIII, and what is the safe upper limit ?

did you remove that "thin plastic" from the "white stickey stuff"?

The square of "white stuff" was on the bottom of the heat sink.
The thin plastic looked as if it had had the square removed..........?
