Default AMD Temps

Hey everyone,

I've built my first AMD rig and was wondering if these temps were too high or within the spec.

Processor AMD Athalon 64 3400
MOBO Asus A8V Deluxe

Idle Temp 45 C
100% Load 60 C

A difference of 15 C.

Thanks

-GrayWolf

what kind of heat sink/fan do you have the tempatures sound ok but if you want to lower it you might want to upgrade.

That's OK but a bit hot, i am thinking you somehow managed to mess up your thermal pad

My 3400+ with a venus 12 stock was 28 idle, 33 load

With it OC'ed to "3900+" (2.5ghz) it's 50 load and i forgot the idle, this is just over 1.8 volts as well.

May I suggest the use of a "period" somewhere in there?
