AMD XP Cooling

I have had my AMD XP1900+ for about a month running a ThermalTake Volcano7 heatsync/fan. The temp is around 42C, no stress, and everyone I know says this is way too hot.

What heatsync and fan can I get that will still be quite (NOT 7000RPM ) and will keep it cooler.

Please advise.

Also, how high can I go temp-wise before getting conserned? (idle/stress)???

42C doesn't seem too bad to me. In my rig, one of my processors is at 47C, and the other one is at 42C.

However, both of my processors have been at 100% usage for about 30 hours straight now.

Anyhow, it would be good for you to mention the make of your motherboard so that we can get an idea of what would fit.

42C is fine .............start worrying when it hits 55C under 100% load

if you want to get a better heatsink w/o breaking the bank, check out the Thermalright AX7.

Doh! My motherboard is a Soyo Dragon Plus.

Does anyone have exsperance with the ThermalRight heatsyncs? I was looking in to getting one, and also putting on a side fan over the general area of the heatsync.

I wouldn't worry too much about your computer running at 42*. I have 5 XP machines and they all run at 50 or over and I haven't had a hiccup. As long as your machines stable, who cares what temp it runs at? I know it's like some kind of pi$$ing contest with some people, but as long as my machines runs the way it's supposed to, I don't really care about anything else.

thats nothing, i've had a duron to boiling point and it still lived to tell the tale! And didn't crash either

The trick is, whne it gets that high not to suddnly cool. I switched a fan on low so it cooled it slowly back down.

the same way I cooled it down!

I was saturating a heat sink by turning the fan off, letting it heat up to 60c and then putting the fan back on.

anyway, I forgot to turn the fan back on, so folding@home was happilly sailing it up the degree ladder.

Thanks for all the help!

Spyder reccomended taking off the filters for the fans and changing the heatsync to a non-temp sencing one. This worked quite well - the temp is now about 38C idle and 43C load!

Still, what about the ThermalRight heatsyncs?

Yeah. What is a reccomended fan - approx. 5,000RPM - for the ThermalRight heatsync?

And Spyder - where in Ptown can I pick up the ThermalRight?

I got the temp down! Adding a case side fan over the heatsync REALLY helps the heat! My temp is now 35C at idle and 40C under 4 hours of stress... I think its doing well... Now, once I get my window and ducting, it will be even cooler! w00t!
