    starfury6 those temps seem kinda high for a fx. sounds to me as the heatsink isn't sitting properly. a64s should run cooler than athlon xp's.

    I'm going to remove and clean the HS tonight and dollop a bit of the AS5 on instead of spreading it myself like I did previously, hopefully that'll help.

    The FX55 I thought was one of the hottest CPU's out there? It has a power profile of 105W!

    down to 24 idling, up to 33 under load.

    overclocked it's about 32 idle and 38 load.

    edit

    i was wrong, the temps i gave for my stock speeds were for my mid-level OC, i don't know stock speed temps.

    hmmm my idle time is 34c for the CPU and 31c for the nForce3 Chipset
    heavy load (after, say, 2 hours of battle for middle earth or brothers in arms or half-life 2 etc...) is 52c for the CPU and 33c for the nForce3 Chipset
    I'm overclocking though .... as you can see in my signature.

    I just turned on CPU disconnect function in my NF-7 BIOS- now I sit at about 30 to 32c idle... FSB temp at 22c to 24c

    That is with around a 667mhz OC- (I always run it at that speed) 1533 to 2200mhz

    Well I'm running my PC very quitely. It's got 5 120mm fans and they barely move air and barely make noise so my temps aren't great.

    My idle is about 36-38 now and depending on the game... If I play like a few hours of Warcraft 3, my load is max 47-48 but running Prime for a few hours will be like 53-55. So I dunno :(

    You should get a fan controller so while playing games you can crank up your fans just enough to keep your temps under 45c or so. They make some really nice fan controllers- if you don't have one already you should pick one up that has enough controls for all your fans.

    Well all the fans are running at max... :p I should by stronger ones but instead, I'm gonna install 2 intake fans right above the CPU so that it'll cool it. If I turn my CPU fan all the way up with my controller, it's really loud but temps are in the 32-41 ;)

    I redid the AS5 on my FX55 processor, removed the internal fan guards inside my Lian-Li PC60, removed the drive cage at the bottom and moved the hard drive up to just below the floppy. Furthermore I changed the rear ADDA 80mm exhaust fan for a new YS Tech fan rated much higher and managed to drop the load temp from 58C (which was AFTER the AS5 had bed in) to 49C BEFORE the AS5 has bed in.

    Nice.

    Will replace the stupidly noisy YSTech 120mm 125CFM fan with an Asaka Ultra Quiet 120mm after the AS5 bed in time. Far too noisy at the moment.

    Wow! :eek:

    It looks like my 1.8 and 2.4 run at crazy temps. after reading this...I better check with my dealer now before buying any stuff from him...I wonder why the 1.8 used to run so hot anyway.

    Intel P4 1,800Mhz @ 1.5V core (my old P4533MX mobo) - 38 degrees idle, 49 under load
    Intel Prescott P4 2,400Mhz - not sure of the core and all but the temps generally in the range of the 50s.

    Oh, and both have Evercool fans whirring down upon them.
