Hi, n00b to all this.

I am running an AMD Athlon 2400+ @ 2.0GHz (not oc'd)

I am worried that my idle temps are too high ( CPU 47degrees CASE 35degrees). I have seen the same CPU oc'd with lower temps when loaded!

My question is can anyone reccomend some good fans that will give me a substantial drop in idle/load temps whilst at the same time keeping my comp relatively quiet?????

I have a stock CPU fan and an 80mm case fan at the back - both of which sound like a harrier taking off!

Plz help!!

D.L

What is the motherboard, current heatsink/fan, PSU and case?
Idle temps are meaningless, don't get concerned with those at all. Only 100% load temps matter. And even then, unless you experience stability problems, they do not matter.

Mobo: MSI KT6V series
HS/Fan: just stock i believe - asaka fan and HS - dont kno model
PSU: 250W
Case: Generic beige one, one 80mm exhuast fan at the back - no others except for CPU and PSU ones

I will run CPU burn-in later and then post the load temps.



right. Load temps are as follows (using SpeedFan) CPU 52*C and Case 38*C.

Just for comparison the MSI Core Centre (mobo) is giving: CPU 55*C and case 38*C!!
