I have a MSI KT8 FSR motherboard with my Athlon 64 3200+, I have stock cooling, and 2 case fans and it runs about 39 degrees at room temp. One fan as exhaust by the CPU and one as an intake down low. Also put sleeving on the wires or buy a psu with sleeving already on it to increase the airflow.

Only use Windows XP Professional in my opinion, it has increased stability.

Also I think you should use Corsair... because it is better... but that could be because I am an AMD and Corsair dedicated customer
