I have a felling the temp of my duron 1.2GHz is causing lockups. does anyone know what the maximum operating temp of this or a similar cpu would be before i experienced stability issues? I am getting a lot (i mean a lot) of lockups in dos trying to format or whatnot) and i think the temp might be the cause. its running 70-80 degrees celsius. i know i will get a new fan, but i cant for a day or two.

My (1.4ghz). I can't remember exactly, but I think it locked up at less than 70C. It only did it once because I forgot to apply the thermal compound when I changed heatsink(I'll never forget that again).:eek:

Sure !

80 degrees celsius ? That's very much . I have 46 at my Athlon ! take a new Fan TITAN ( mine has 7500 rot ) or Volcano and you will see the difference .
I say that the maximum temperature for your processor should stay at 60-63 degrees . .

The Volcano 6cu + is very loud. It runs at a constant 7000 rpm. The normal Volcano 6cu (without the +) runs at about 4550rpm.

Seriously, spend the extra on the Volcano 7.

i installed a volcano 6CU and its running cool as a cucumber and xp is installing too. sweet! I think the problem was not that the fan was that bad, but it wasnt installed correctly. When i took it off there was part of the cpu die that was not covered by the thermal pad that was on the heatsink. i got myself some arctic silver and now all is good :D
