My athlon 1.4, not overclocked, is running at 52 C idle! My mobo temp is at 41 C! What the heck is going on! Is this to hot.. It used to run at 47 C idle and all of a sudden it went up. The room temp hasn't changed to much. The fans are all working fine. How can I cool it down.. and should i worry about those temps?
I'm running a 1.4 as well (not overclocked). I recommend using some Arctic II as it works pretty damn good. I'm running a Global Win WBK38 (loud but I got used to it). At full load mine doesn't go past 47C and my motherboard doesn't go over 27.5. To increase some airflow, get some rolled up IDE cables or if not, wrap your existing Flat cable and put some electric tape around them. I did that, they work fine. Get Good Air Flow! can't stress that enough.
