Temps for XP2100+ B core on KT7-R

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Jason Richardson, Oct 10, 2003.

  1. I got my new CPU (AIUHB stepping) and it booted up at 2GHz just like Wes
    said it would (no doubts about that at all). At default core voltage of
    1.6V my temps are hovering around 50C and higher under load (the machine
    rebooted itself when I tried to run 3DMark 2003). I purchased the retail
    kit so I installed it with the AMD heatsink. I'm assuming that I should be
    able to get my temps closer to 40C. Any suggestions?

    I don't remember what mine ran at, but it wasn't that hot even with my old
    aluminum HSF. First thing I'd do is reinstall the HSF using thermal paste.
    The pad is no good now. It's a one shot installation. If you're sure you
    have it on right and your temps still don't drop, and your case temp isn't
    too high, then I'd replace the stock cooler with one of the newer
    copper/aluminum hybrids. If you want cheap, a TR2-M1 will work well and
    will fit. It's not the best, but at $8, it's very good, and it's pretty
    quiet compared to some of the others.
