I have an Athlon XP 1900+ running at 1600 MHz. I have an Asus A7V333 mobo with 512 MB DDR RAM. I have the retail fan and heatsink that came with the processor. It's running between 28 and 29 degrees celcius (82-84 F) according this software called SpeedFan, but that's while I'm not really doing much. Do I need to determine what it's temps are at heavier loads before I do anything or what?
I downloaded another program and it says the CPU temp is 57 degrees celcius. I know that is not good. That's what the other one measured it to be too, I was just looking at the wrong reading. I need another heatsink or something.....57 C (134 F) if awfully hot is it not?
That is pretty hot for the XP 1900+ I have about the exact system as you running 42 Celcius and 107 F after playing way to long on Counterstrike (not like that game takes much) I got up to about 120 F when my CPU is running for awhile and room temp is (HUGE guess here) 70 degrees F

that temp is fine. but not if your going to over clock. if you really want to over clock you will need to get a better hsf. the reading of 28 and 29 has to be the mother board temp. that is a bit on the high side. do you have any case fans? for that room temperature you should not be seeing temps in that range.
how do you shoot the devil in the back? what happens if you miss? -verbal
