For the past two months, I have been investigating methods in getting my CPU to run cooler. My Idle temperature was always at 41 to 43 deg. C. Its an AMD 2100+ Palomino. On this Forum and others, I have asked which HSF was better for my situation and K7 mobo. I was closing in on the Cooler Master Hyper 6+, when I came across two software programs called, CPUIdle and Mother Board Monitor. After reading their specs. I downloaded and installed and configured these two programs for my K7 motherboard. Well, I am here to tell you that my Idle temperature is now sitting at 28 deg. C as I type this Post. For the most part, my Idle temp. is basically around 29 deg. C. Guess what, I stopped looking to get a new HSF. Just wanted to share this with anyone contemplating buying a bigger and better HSF. Have a good day.
