Problem with idling
I have a 1.2ghz athlon on a abit kt7a mobo with a vantec fce-62540D delta hsf and it always runs at about 107f no matter if it is under full load or idle. I've tried progs like cpuidle and rain, but they cause my comp to crash if i try to do any thing while they are running, but otherwise work great. does anyone have a solution to this?

Welcome to AOA Forums, Joe Mauma! 42C ain't bad. If your case throughput is less than 100 cfm, improving it may make a difference. The Vantec FCE-60450D is a great HSF for the price, but you might consider upgrading to a Vantec CCK-6035D. They don't cost much more than the all aluminum 60450D, but it's nice to have copper power in your corner.

What are your voltages on 5v and vcore?My 1.4 at 4.8v and above idles at 95f.If 5v drops to 4.78v or less it idles at 107f.Low voltage on 5v may be keeping it from going into idle state.

Your thermistor may not be close enough to measure the change in temp of your CPU.

Pull the cpu bend the thermistor up and reinstall.

Then check. I bet you'll see a change.

If it ALWAYS (and I mean even when it was JUST turned on) reads 107 you got yourself a BAD thermistor.
