That's plenty cool enough. What does it get up to running a hungry game? If it stays under 40c the fan is doing a good job.

Yep those temps are fine, especially for an XP chip. Actually those temps are great for an XP chip, I agree with hipster, no need to worry about another cooler. If you're looking to overclock, a volcano 9 is a fairly cheap option or you could go with something more exotic like a Thermalright SLK 800. A bit pricey but mmmmm, nice :D

You should panic if it goes over 65C. AMD can run at 65C fine. Mine runs at about 55C ( I know; I know. Heatsink sucks )

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
