i dont know how to cool down my processor ,
idle tempreture very cool 49*C but when it load (game/3D aplication/rendering) the tempreature boost up to 62-67*C. i use copper heatsink and Hi-spin fan (8000rpm!! but the tempreature still the same. this very wierd!

spec:
AMD ATLHON XP 2500+ (barton) / Vcore 1.64-1.67 / speed 1833MHz / Temp 49-67Celcius
motherboard MSI:KM4M

> make sure you are using adequate amount of thermal paste
> make sure the hsf is mounted correctly
> check the airflow inside the case

Somebody else had a similar problem with an MSI KM4M-V board.

http://forums.amd.com/index.ph...wtopic=67429&hl=xp2700

Maybe the sensor reads high.

-using adequate amount of thermal paste (O.K)
-make sure the hsf is mounted correctly (O.K)
-check the airflow inside the case (the problem come from here: recently I mounted a new HDD fan cooler
then after i remove it the tempreature fall down to 56-57*C...I think this cause by in correct air flow in case that make my big cpu fan suck back the hot air!!!

Thanks a lot

Got a follow up question on that...
How much thermal paste is enough? because i am planning to re-apply thermal paste on my processor because its more than a yr since i have it all installed. my idle now is 45... overload around 52. i still remember that it runs at 38 at idle and 45 when overload before.
i just wonder if some here has a video on how to apply thermal paste? thanks!

fahmi, I have been reading several little snippets from google when I typed in MSI KM4M temperature problem, it sounds like the Km4m -l and -v versions are the main cuplrits. As long as your system is stable I would not really worry about the temperature as I think it is just reading the sensor incorrectly.

carlos, go to the thermal paste manufacturer's website and see what the instructions they show are.

if your setup is stable its maybe ,the temperature prob whos is the problem..When you play game ,the heatsing is very hot ? when you put your finger on ?I thinks its your heatsing or the probe !

If my knowledge is good ,cpu diode is in fact the internal thermometer in the core of the cpu ,its more accurate and generaly higher, than the probe of the motherboard under the core of the cpu .Some motherboard have the 2 probe ,and sometimes the difference between is 2 temperature is 10-15 degrées,but in fact its the same temperatures but from different point .

thanks for the rep.. though its weird because it never appeared before... it just show up after i re-apply the thermal paste on my processor today. i am kinda worried because cpu diode idle at 54c!! and my cpu idle at 44c. do you think i did not put enough thermal compound on my processor?

i dont think so ,maybe your heatsink is not placed properly on the cpu ..but like i said before ,if your system is stable dont worry ,if the pc reboot or hang ,when you load the cpu in application or gaming i think you have a problem !
