From what I've been told, any CPU temperature below 60C is okay. Naturally,
the lower you can get the CPU temperature the better. My own T-bird
1.333GHz CPU temperature is currently floating about 55C. So I'm safe. I
just upgraded my system with a new motherboard. Planning to upgrade my CPU
next with an XP 2800+. The F/HS I plan to use is the Tipmagnetic A4002D
from Cyberguys.com. This F/HS is rated good for AMD CPUs up to XP 3400+.

Older TBirds run hotter because they used more voltage and were made on a
..18micron process compared to .13micron now.

Holy cats, 160f?? Do you cook dinner with that?

When I had my 1.4 - it ran around 119-129f (copper cooler).

I recently had a Thermalright SK6+ (all copper) on an XP 2400+ (ran from
114-126f).

My current XP 2600+ with a ThermalTake Volcano 7+ runs (109-116f) even on
medium setting - low noise.

The cooler makes all the difference. Copper core -vs- all copper (All copper
wins).

An XP will run alot cooler then your TBird.
