Question High 2200+ temps : 8K3A+ to blame??

Just installed an AXP2200+ in a 8K3A+ with a Volcano 7+ running at high (6000rpm).

Temps are (stock speed):
Idle:53c
Load: 56-57c

I'm using Coolmaster Premium Thermal compound (AS3 substitute) and have 100cfm+ of case cooling.
I read in another thread that different BIOS's are giving different readings from the internal diode - I'm using the latest one (2815).

My overclocked T-bird on the same board was running at ~43c under load with a stock HSF...

So could the board be misreading the diode - this happened to the ASUS A7V333 untill a BIOS update fixed it

Maybe try a reseating of the HSF, but that really isn't too bad. The 8K3A/+ is reading the temps from the internal diode on the XP. You will see higher temps than you would with a TBird because it reads from the in socket sensor with the older Athlons. My XP 2000+ is at 47c right now and goes up to 54c under serious load.

Those temperatures seem fine to me.

The real question to ask is "is it stable ?" not "how hot is it ?"

My system is stable, even at 2Ghz (haven't tried higher yet, damn PC2100), but I thought high temperatures could damage the core, even if it is coping...

could be the fact that the first Tbreds (xp2200's) are a furnace at load, they all run very hot an according to some places alot of systems with them have been RMA'd due to constant instability(manufacturers rarely use decent heatsinks)


Try the new Volcano 9 if you can its rated for the XP 2600

The first tbreds (xp2200) run extremely hot. AMD reworked the process to improve that problem and the XP2400 and higher will not have the same issue. Relax though, AMD rates this CPU ok to run up to 85 degrees celcius.

The original TBred has a much smaller contact area than the Palamino. The additional layer and extra contact area on TBred-B should help somewhat...

Stock HSF....

:nervous:

Those appear to be some good temps considering. Try an SLK-800 if you have the $$ to spare, you won't be disappointed.

Unhappy

Thought this was a good HSF...nevermind.

Makes you wander what temps 2200+ cpus are running at in manufactured computers - which usually have no case cooling and a crap HSF.

Odd that the 2200+ should be rated to 85deg, yet the palaminos are 90/95deg. I'd have thought it would have been the other way round considering the diff in operating temperatures.
