No thats not normal. Try resetting the HS and and make sure you dont put too much thermal past on it. Get some artic silver if you can.silky62678 said:I have a Thermaltake Volcano 11 and getting around 55c idle. im thinking that's not normal. Any ideas? Im running AMD XP 2400 o.c. at 2600.
You want to put a drop about the size of a grain of rice on it. It dont take much at all.Teddy said:Just outta interest...how much is 'too much' cos i just put a new processor in the Shuttle XPC with a generous (but no overly-generous) amount of paste.

me too! On other thread you said all stable.... true or false?falcone said:oh no... my new xp 2800+ is running 55c idle... n reboots the CPU when reaching 60.. is this normal?
my airflow at the moment is 1 UPS exhaust, 1 5 1/2" bay fan to draw out air in front, a front fan also throwing out air... is this okay? a little confused what would be a good airflow pattern
