Just assembled a new system based on the amd 64 3000+ with the mobo Abit NF8 and 512Mb of Samsung mem.
Now I find the temps it gives me are somewhat higher then what I was expecting.
idle : min 38°C
load (prime95): 62.5°C with a case temp of 31°C.

would this be a normal reading, seeing as my XP Barton 2500+ running at 2.2Ghz is only at 26°C in the same room (case temp at 16°C)

hmm, maybe the case flow is not all that good, if I take a look at the case temps...
There is a fan at the back, the psu has a 120mm fan above the cpu and there is a blowhole on top.

First things first, update your BIOs to the newest BIo version, not including beta.

This will probably change the temps its reading.

Also, make sure your getting some good airflow, mainly wire clutter.

Sounds like you need a front intake fan, outtake fans can't work too well without an intake at the front.

Did you install the CPU + heatsink yourself? If so, did you use thermal paste, or the pre-applied thermal paste, or the thermal pad that sometimes comes with it?

ok, I did leave some details out.
first, the case does not have front intake fans, like you mentioned.
I did install the heatsink myself, and I used the pre-applied thermal paste.
the temps i mentioned from my 2500+ are when idle (sorry)
Ilet it run prime during the night and had no probs, so i guess it's all good.
will see if i can mount front intake fans to improve temps a little

thanks all

updated the bios, I now have the case open and on idle the abit µguru is showing me 43.5°C with a system temp of 15°C.
The 15°C makes sence, as my own pc is giving me 16°C system.
Guess the Abit has a somewhat dodgy temp sence, because when I touch the heatsink,
it feels as cold as the case itself...

Gone try sending a mail to abit to ask if there are any probs with this mobo.
