New guy here...Have small ??

What would be a "normal temp for a Bartton 3000+
MBM says its 54*c and the sys is 39*c Easytune 5 says 55/39

This is stock no over clock overclocked to a fsb of 177 (thats all th further it will go stable, can't even think about a 200mhz fsb) it's running MBM 53*/39* c and ET5 says 57*/39* c

I get some self restarts but not many.

Mid to low 60's c after 10 runs of sandra soft burn in just the first two tests

The main board ia a GA7n-400L with the F11 bios update.
Kingston ram 2 512 sticks PC3200 dual channel mode.
BFG 6800GToc running stock speeds 370/1.0
The heatsink/fan is a Thermaltake Volcano 11 with a silver TIM

When I first put it on the heat was in the 40 but since then it has risen and hangs out in this area..hav I done something wrong ?Any help or suggestions or just telling me the temps are normal for a 3000+ chip.

I know my old 1800+ with a cheap copper cooler was 36-38 idle

Thanks again folks

Hi Hutch,

Welcome to the forums !!!

I'm not the smartest guy around here but I have a philosophy of start with the simple things first. I think I would start with looking at the seating of the HSF right off, and check your coating of paste.
You sound like you know what you are doing, you have given all of the right info to get help. Maybe someone will have a better understanding for that specific chip.
I hope you get the temps down.
Then, as it was, then again it will be
Though the course may change,
rivers will always reach the sea.

Those temps are about what you should expect. That line of motherboard reads the actual on-chip will notice that right away it jumps a few degrees when placed underload, and will drop 2-3 right after it's taken away. I generally trust Easytune for sensor readings, but it's not to be used for overclocking, at least not at the athlon level. The MBM monitor temp will just slowly raise...a good indicator that it's socket temp that it's reporting. The system temp sound right on for a passively cooled northbridge. I can only get mine down to 29c, and i have a iceberqpro vga cooler on mine.
I've noticed that the higher level 256kb cache chips are quite beasts for heat... i have a 2600 that ran hotter than that(63 idle!!), but a 2400 that tops out at 44 and a 1700+ that stops @ 39.the current mobile i have in my current board hits 58c when i forget to crank up the fans.
I've installed alot of those boards, and they are quite reliable, but don't offer the overclocking potential of some other manufacturers. I have one client that decided to install his old motorola cybersurfer wave modem inside his case...the only thing that survived the temperature overload was the board and the one stick of RAM. Everything else died!

Go with real Artic Silver 5, and expect about a 6-10 degree drop, if you lap that heatsink.
