Heat problems

Hi, ive got an Athlon XP 1600+ running with a 149fsb, id unlock it and overclock it more execet for the problem of heat, it runs around 50degreees, thats with a Coolermaster HAC-V81 XDream heatsink+fan and 2 case fans sucking air in at the front and 1 blowing out at the back. Im wandering how far i can push it heatwise as i dont have room for any more case fans , could someone tell me what an acceptable temperature for it to run at is please?

50% C is pushing the threshold. That's right at where I start to worry about it with my XP chips. AMD will tell you it will take more but having it run stable is a whole different story. It sounds like you may want to play a bit with your case air flow and see if you can drop it a bit that way. You can only cool to the point of how cool the air in there is. Really the only other thing is to think about is running a little H2O through it.

This is just my opinion there surely will be others to follow....

Hmm, if 50 is pushing it abit i can turn the rpm up on my x dream, makes it run at around 45. But i havent done this yet as it tends to sound like a 747 takeoff. But if it will help my cpu out ill put up with the runway sounds

i think your fine as for temps, unless you start to lock up in games and stuff, your fine, just above 60c s the real limit

Like I said..... 50*C Is my break point. My older XP chips ( Year old at the most ) have a hard time with anything over about 54*. You will find that Folding will tell you where your break point is. It's a fine line... You also have to conceder the time of year. It's cooler now than it will be in a few months. Just something to ponder...... If your getting 50*C now, what will you be getting in a couple of months in the heat of the summer? I'll probably be notching back the clocking a bit then, unless I get some plumbing done around here. :nervous:

He lives in england. No such summer heat problems here (apart from two weeks when everyone is in cornwall or abroad and has their computer switched off anyway).

Mine runs rock stable folding upto 54. I've never let it go over that temperature just as a precaution. Have a 120mm blowhole now on the top which cools everything nicely.

Ok, thanks for all the advice people, as youve pointed out stigweed, the summer doesnt bring weather any hotter than we have in the winter here in the UK. Ive stepped it down to 145fsb and im running my x dream at little higher rpm with only a slight increase in noise. It runs at 46-47degrees now full load. Thanks again for the help :beer:

It still touches 30c down south most years.
