I tried to upgrade CPUs to a XP 1800+, but it didnt work as I need to update my BIOS,..So I reinstalled my Duron 600,..

Im using Arctic Silver 5 and it seems now my CPU temps are running high,...Currently its at 66 deg C,...Im not sure if it was running this hot before as I think it was in the mid to high 50's before when I was using the cheaper thermal white grease (cheaper stuff at CompUSA that came with the CPU cooling fan),...

I followed the Arctic Silver instructions for application and am using the same CPU cooling fan suitable enough for a Athlon 1.4 on my current Duron 600,...

What should my temp be at to be safe???

your temp is high, check the heatsink for dust, also is there good air circulation through your case (blowing the hot air out)?

hey dude i had that prob with my prescott before i rechecked it. that stuff is thick so make sure that u have it applied thin and even across the heatsink. yea and also check ur heatsink and circulation like charlie said.

Figured out the problem,.It isnt the Arctic Silver,....it was the heatsink/fan combo,...

The CPU fan is connected to the heatsink as a unit,..When you place the heatsink/fan atop the CPU and clamp it down, there is a metal "dial" that pulls the heatsink/fan combo downwards onto the CPU securely. This is to dissipate the heat,...I clamped it downwards and now my temps are around 49-51Deg C. However, the metal end of the "dial" you use to turn it to clamp it downwards touches one of the mobo round capacitors,..hope this isnt bad,...
