Default another overheating problem

Ive gave my bro my old 2600xp. Now ive put it on its running at close to 60C all the time, and that is underclocked to 1.6gig so i know it will fry if i put it normal. Ive tried the stock AMD cooler and a coolermaster jet7 and they both get poor results. I really need to do something about it but im out of ideas, and i dont want to spend any money on it.

Any1 got any ideas i can use to cool this thing down??

thanks

Try another cooler like the Thermalright XP-90, that should give better performance.

You could try clearing the BIOS. Or may-be flashing it to updated version. And yes, AS5 will help, remember just a pinch and spread it out nice and thin.

The 2600xp shouldn't be running that HOT for any reason.
