Hey all. I just installed a new barton 2500+ cpu into my Shuttle AN35/Ultra mobo, and the temperature it is posting is about 46C at idle? My old 2500 idled at about 40C, tops. The voltage seems right, the HSF is on correctly. Anyone have any ideas?
slight differences in the application of the heatsink and thermal paste can make a few degrees difference. I wouldn't worry about those temperatures. The thermal paste seems to seep around and improve slightly after a few days use (I think)
