My Thunderbird runs at 109 and about 115 gaming and thats OC'd. XP's are supposed to be a little cooler and I hear the Athlons can run safely up to 150 (according to Leo Laporte anyway).

fitting a case fan (the right way round!) may lower your temp by 10C.....

if possible, buy a cpu fan that rotates at 7000....

you may find that you have the budget heatsink and fan and that the better version has the same heatsink but a faster fan...

it may sound mental..... and drive you :dead: CRAZY:dead: but it will keep that hot CPU cool.....

Hey but come on! if my cpu was at 90C I would be @~@@D@D myself!

You try putting your hand into 90C water and see what happens.

30-40C is more like it.
