    Now it says that it's an Athlon xp 2000+!
    I'm happy I was not mad when I remembered that! ;)

    Bye

    Hey that`s great news mate.

    Is that temp of 62°c at idle or under load?

    If it`s at idle then that`s a bit hot.

    It's when light working (like surfing the net) :eek: ! If I'm risking something I will just slow down the clock!

    Allright?

    Go to www.cpuidle.de and install CPUIdle. Should lower temps by about 10 degrees C.
    Check that you have proper thermal paste between CPU and cooler.

    I'm going to install that and let you know! Thanks!

    Yes, there is thermal paste between CPU and cooler, but I don't really know if it's proper. How can I?

    Hey, thanks, the temperature did really go down 10°!
    Great suggestion!

    As long as the paste is there, and your cooler is properly mounted on the CPU, you should be fine.

    Still I can't run Pcmark04, because the comp crashes, and I think that's due to the heat! :(

    If you are OCing, turn it down to default.
    Your PSU may also be too weak to sustain enough power for OC.
    Get a better cooler, like from Zalman.

    No, I'm not overclocking, I just want the default speed: 1667mhz. I don't know why it is so hot! I just wanted to run pcmark04 to test the stability, as I know that involves lot of work for the cpu!
