From the Bios:
MB Temp: 26 deg C / 78 deg F

CPU Temp: 56 deg C / 131

CPU Vcore: 1.775v

CPU Vcore Setting: Menu


Asus A7N8X2.0 Deluxe
AMD Athlon XP 2800 "Barton" Processor
WIN98 SE OS

400 w PS



1. Are these temps normal or what?

2. Is there a monitoring Program available for download that I can watch temps without havint to go back to BIOS?

3. Is this OS okay for now with this system or do I need to upgrade ASAP?

4. CPU Vcore Stuff? What is this for: Are these settings correct?

5. Fan/processor noise: Sound similar to a increase and decrease in rpms of a whining motor. etc.

Vcore should be 1.65v, 1.775v isn't necessary unless you're overclocking. The high Vcore is probably why temps are high. 56C idle isn't exactly dangerous, but if you can make it run cooler for free, why not try, right?

1 - Temps are a bit high, but OK - max temp for your CPU is 85°C, so i wouldn't worry as long as it is stable.

2 - Yes, get MBM5 or Speedfan(search on google)

3 - Well, as long as you can get drivers for your O/S you're fine, i guess.
Updating to a more recent O/S would give you slightly more performance, i think(newer/better drivers)...but it's not absolutely necessary...unless you want to play some games that require DirectX 9 - IIRC, there is no DX9 for Win98
As long you can run as all the apps, games and peripherals you need i see no problem here.

4 - Your Vcore(CPU-Voltage) is too high - this is also the reason for your relatively high temps. Default Vcore for your CPU is 1.65V - i recommend you adjust it accordingly in BIOS.

Go into the Advanced section of your BIOS, set "CPU Vcore Setting" to Manual (or Expert or whatever, just make sure it's not Auto), then set "CPU Vcore" to 1.650v.

Okay, I changed the CPU Vcore Setting to 1.650v. Will monitor temps for a while and see what happens.

Okay another question to add to the list.
5. I am hearing sounds coming from the processor area that sound like a increase of rpms in a fan. A above normal fan noise. Any Ideas? Sometimes it sounds like it is laboring. I have probed it with a car sensor stenphascope or something like that and it is coming from the processor area. I have the case open but I cant see any decrease or increase in fan rotations.
