EP-8RDA3I -- too high CPU temp

Hello!
I need help!
I have EP-8RDA3I board + Athlon XP 2500+. All goes fine, but CPU temp is too high: up to 70*C.Trying working with AMD box cooler, and Igloo 2460 cooler.
CPU vcore is ok, fan speed too.
All settngs by defaults. What's wrong?

P.S.: Sorry for my english ^)

Several things could be out of whack. You could have misplaced the boxed cooler a bit. If you put on a heatsink you should always reapply the thermal compound and clean the cpu die and heatsink before doing so.

How much is the vcore and fan speed? At any rate, the thermal compound and boxed heatsink that comes with the XP cpu is one of the worst i have ever seen. My brothers 2500+ could produce that kind of heat too. He did fold the whole time with it and it remained stable, even at that socket temp so you might be okay. I still advise you to get a better cooler and some AS5

Question

I've got only one thing to add to what Woolf200me wrote above.
Have you got any case fans? At least one, under the PSU, is the absolute minimum to ensure the proper air circulation inside or at least to exhaust the hot air from the CPU's socket area.
