I have an A7V133 with a 1GHZ Thunderbird. What are the max temps I should worry about?
This is what I get at idle for 24hrs; Fahrenheit: 129 Celsius: 53.89

That is way up ther to be idling. Would you kindly elaborate your setup?

The hs/f are what AMD suggests. The specific brand I don't know.
There is also a fan on the KT133A chip.
Geforce MX2 400
Sound Blaster Live Value
Lynksys 10/100 NIC
WD 40g HD
Creative 6X DVD
Samsung CD/RW SW-224B
Win 2000
The brand of Case??? It is screwless and has the power fan and a side fan.
I am adding a front and rear fan now. I am making sure of the direction of airflow. Lower front in. Upper rear out.
Blew out the case and moved my cables.

I have the sinking feeling that I need a better HS/F than what I have. Not looking forward to doing that just yet :? . Might try just cleaning and readding Arctic Silver.

Adding more AS won't solve your problem. Tbirds generates lots of heat. You need to get a good performing HSF

Well, with only a side fan and PSU fan, adding another fan or two would not be a bad idea. And how high are your full load temperatures?

I did the extra fans. One in the lower front blowing in and one in the upper
rear blowing out. It only dropped my temps 4F. Mobo at 30C and CPU at 53C with 3 fans blowing out and one blowing in from the case. No place to put another fan blowing in. I don't know what to use to put a full load on my computer. I was playing Dungeon Seige for a few hours and my temps only rose to 57C on CPU and the mobo stayed at 30C. I didn't mention that the HSF spins at 6600rpm.
Asus sent me an email reply, this is what was written;

Dear valued Customer,
Thanks for Contacting ASUSTeK.

If there is no "Error " showing in bios of "Power" of "Hardware Monitor" then it simply means that your MB and CPU temperature are
both in normal status.
The temperature lower than 50 Celsius is normal. If it is between 50 Celsius to 70 Celsius it is still acceptable. If it is higher than 75
Celsius, your system will be unstable and the CPU could be damaged.


One other thing I noticed is that the computer shop has the HSF blowing away from the CPU straight into the side fan that is blowing out. Now if I see this right, I have 1 fan sucking air from the CPU out the side, one blowing in from the front and 2 blowing out from the rear, doesn't the front and rear conflict with the side :?: :?: :?:

You mean to say that they have the heatsink fan set up to blow air AWAY from the heatsink??

If so, reverse that fan immediately!! :o

My mistake :oops: . The HS fan is blowing into the HS :oops: . I also forgot to clean between the fins of the HS with air, but it is still running at
53C while writing this. MOBO is at 31C and holding steady. It has been on all day. I think I will try cleaning and re-adding ASIII. If that still doesn't work, my next guess is a new HSF. I don't know the manufacturer of my HSF but the HS is exactly the same diameter as the 60x60mm fan and about 1.5 in high and made from aluminium.

I believe I have solved my problem. I pulled the HSF and there was only some white goo on the HSF and not the CPU die. I bought me some ASII, the computer shop didn't have ASIII.
My CPU temps are 47C/116F while writing this and last night while playing Dungeon Seige it went up to 52C.
I know that is still a bit high, but AS said it takes;
"72 hrs to achieve maximum particle to particle thermal conduction and for the heatsink and CPU interface to reach maximum conductivity."
I only put it on yesterday afternoon.
I am pretty much satisfide since it brought my temps down 7C at idle and only go up 5C while playing games. :D :D :D
