Okay, when I hook up the fan in the front of my case, my temps are at CPU:52 and System:38.

But when I unhook the front (there's still one in the back), the CPU temp is at 48 degrees (just surfing...more around 47 or 46 when just idling.) and System: 41.

Question is...which should I take? Not having the front fan on definately makes the darn thing much quieter. Oh yea...I'm using a stock cooler too. Waddya think?

It looks like the only reason to keep the front case fan in is the CPU temp...
Whew...looks like it'll be a while for that. I've gotta save the rest of my cash for school. Any heatsink suggestions? I had a Volcano 7, but wasn't too impressed w/ it...

Stock heatsinks can be good. The fans that come with AMD boxed processors are thermaltakes. I run this on my 1700+ and after heavy gaming i am at 39 degrees. Good venting in the case makes a big difference.

I planned on getting a newer HSF sometime in the future...but by that time, I'll be savin for the new clawhammer....or maybe even a prescott...But I'm a loyal AMDer...hopefully the new hammer will wow me...I know this processor did!

NOTE: If this starts an AMD vs. Intel thread...I'm gonna have a moderator shut it down...

About Volcano 7+...

Got 2 quick questions about Volcano 7+

1. It seems that I have 2 connectors that will connect to my motherboard to monitor the rpm.

One is white the other is brown, but they both have the same colour wire (yellow)

The only difference between the two is that one comes from the heatsink (white), and the other (brown) comes from the device that lets you change the speed.

Currently I'm using the white one and the brown one isn't connected. Any idea why they put 2? I haven't tried the brown one out yet either...

2. Also, how good is the compound that comes with package compared to Artic Silver Compound???

You will get about 2-5C cooler with the artic silver compound. Be forewarned...Volacano cools well, but even on medium speed it is quite noisy...But it looks nice, too bad noone ever looks in your case :rolleyes:

temp starts at 34-36 degs... chasis is always around 32.

it tops out around 39 or 40 degs... I've had max cpu usage at 60 percent

I use arctic compound AND I have a volcano 7... just changed my coolermaster copper which cost more.. cooled a degree more but almost made me deaf...

remember the heavier your heatsink is the more likely you might pull your socket out of the board

i have a very large nmber of fans in my computer and the air flow is well managed... all wires are stored to the side so the flow can be managed better...

thats all folks...

Okay! This has me freaked.

According to Asus PCProbe my CPU is running at 61 C and the MB at 38C.

I'm using a Thermaltake SuperOrb on an Athlon 900 and no overclocking.

Do I need to start paniking?

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
