I recently built a system using an AMD 64 3000+ venice core and an MSI micro-atx MOBO. Case was the antec Aria...and i'm a little concerned about the heat. Everyone knows the ARIA case is tiny, and things tend to run hot. However, my CPU temp is reporting an idle of about 50-53C, MOBO around 37-40C and HDD at about 40C. I ran a burn in test for about 5 minutes, and the CPU went to 61C, and didn't seem to get any hotter, and didn't shut down. Do these temps sound normal for my circumstances, or did I do something wrong. Thanks for reading!
QUOTE(JonJon @ Aug 5 2005, 09:52 AM)does it use the radeon xpress 200 chipset? If so then the temp readings are a bit off since I've used a 3000+ venice on two of those motherboards and they both reported high temps. [right][snapback]474824[/snapback][/right]
indeed, it is. anything i should do??? I had the computer shut down, with a beep noise...i figured it was overheat...but...does that mean the chip is hot, or the MOBO just thinks it is??
