Re: AMD athon temp
I'm pretty sure the Athlon XP's Idle somewhere around 54*C, and under load should not go over 70, with stock cooling. It would help a little if you could get software to monitor the temps. Those seem like pretty decent temps since those are read at the BIOS (they're usually a little higher than idle at the BIOS for me), but be very careful overclocking it.
EDIT: Also, 1 fan blowing in and 1 blowing out would probably help a little bit.
ASUS A8N32 SLI-Deluxe, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.8GHz, eVGA 8800GTS 320MB, 2GB Corsair XMS DDR400, 160GB WD HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10, AC Freezer 64 Pro, 700W OCZ GameXStream, NZXT Zero :D
I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.
