    ok when i hook up a volcano 5 to my 2100+ i get idle temps about 43-45c, and 49-50 at load......this is saving my ears from the volcano 7's noisey #$$ fan.... but are these temps too high?

    with the volcano 7 i would get anywhere from 40-42c idle, 46-48 load....

    mabey you guys can post what temps you get and/or what u guys consider a good idle and load for a 2100+

    Those temps are what I get with the HSF supplied in the 2000+ retail package.

    With heatsink receiving air directly from AC duct, i get around 35-idle and 42 load. With no direct airfolw from AC duct I get around 39 idle and 50 load.

    However the noise sometimes get to me, so I usually don't keep my heatsink at full power.

    BTW: I didn't use any artic silver, anyone know how much more my temps would drop if i did?

    the highest i've ever seen mine is 50, but mostly upper-40's under load, which is fine. just don't let it get above 50 that much.

    That's not a reason to get worry , temperatures are fine for that CPU type . Risks are above 60 degrees ..
