i just build my 2nd pc but i had a problum with putting the stock
heatsink on the cpu
(AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 2.2GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor retail)
i had to use force to get the clip to go over
when i came to push the lever down on the heatsink it was so tight that
i could not get it to go down without with risk of snaping it off the mounting of the heatsink is very tight on the cpu so i left it and finished biulding my pc

only problom with that i tryed getting the heatsink off and i cannot get it off
as its that tight on the clips that hold it down

power up first time every thing working ok

can i run it without the lever of the heatsink going down that holds it down


the cpu temp idle is runnign from 37-39 c (used core temp beta and speedfan)been about a week now

ran prime 95 for about 2 hours and it rose to 44-45c

is that the average temps for a AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 2.2GHz on stock heatsink and fan ?

yes, is the standard temps. would still put he clamp down, mine was very tight to on a 3800 x2, 6150k8ma winfast board. but it weas fine, and i had no problems removing the stick sink to put on my aquarius II. what kind of troubles are you having with removing the heatsink?


Work requires research. thus, the Camthraxinator has returned.
