There's no reason to upgrade the BIOS. Which direction did you say your fans are blowing? It's supposed to blow in from the front and out the back, top, and side (if you have a top and side).

I have an AMD Athlon XP2600 that usually runs between 49c idle to around 57c under load.

I always thought that AMD ran hotter than pentiums??? Have I got it the wrong way around???

Actually, upgrading the BIOS can bring down temperatures as it optimizes the chipsets to supply exact voltages and within a period of timing tables mind you, reroutes volt regulators properly.

Also, get better coolinga and thermal compound and insure that the heatsink and thermal compound are installed correctly.

The fan on the side should be blowing out, not in.
