He's right, get some cardboard on all sides of that thing.
Thanks for ideas guys
Not a problem!
Holy shit! I forgot to add you to the list, InnocentCriminal! Sorry!

That might explain the random crashes I have been getting with this rig.... Still working all of the bugs out before I O/C any higher. How much voltage can these bartons handle?
Well, my mobile AMD Athlon XP-M 2600+ barton could manage 2.1V
Geez thats high volts man....
And what do ya make of these temps?
Well craigleberry, you may want to try the extreme method of Trying a 3rd Party Bios, i have Hellfire 3EG Rev 2 in, im thinking of trying a NEO bios from here once i get everything prepped
The next extreme is to do this but for a kids system, there is no need to do this as it could go bad
Wow man that is crazy stuff to do to my kids pc lol
What about coldbugs for socket A cpu's? Can i put some dry ice on them? I have an idea how to make a mini DI pot.
what are you talking about? 0_o'
Can soc A cpu's work under pot with dry ice (about -50°C)? Isn't it too cold for soc A?
i wouldnt know because ive always aircooled, problem is possibly the core may become brittle, also the extreme cold mixed with room temperature could cause moisture buildup thus frying the chip, but sure go ahead and try it, but id recommend a 3rd party bios, PC 3500-4800 DDR, and better cooling for the NB and SB, and also cooling for the VRMs and other chips that may get hot.
I allready have Tictac's D26 Black Mantaray BIOS, DDR500 RAM, lapped NB and additional cooling on both bridges & mosfets near cpu + Vdd, Vdimm and Vdroop mods.
holy shiz @ 128C
the 42C is fine. I ran my mobile barton 24/7 @ 59C IDLE for about a month and a half
All cause I don't like Dale Jr? LOL.
BTW, post reported
I know I am not too sure what it is thats @120 Deg if someone could help me with that? I think its the GPU Temp
I think I may still have my SN45G profile for SpeedFan - I'll have a bash at looking for it when I'm home.
UPDATE: What motherboard are you using Craig? No wait, I've found your previous post. Unfortunately I can't find a profile for your board, only the nForce 3 version. Wonder if that would work...
Temps are fine running everest . 40 deg for cpu idle have not tested load temps yet. I am going to lap the heatsink on the weekend.
Just found this club and wanted to say hello.
Devout Socket A fan here. So much so that I just cant bring myself to move to the dual/quad cores when my Athlon XP still does everything I need.
So hello to all the Socket A fans out there. Good to know Im not the only one left.
Managed to OC your CPU at all?
Actually, no. I have 3 Athlon XP cores. 1 XP2200 and 2 3200. I have been toying with the idea of OC'ing one of the 3200's though. Think I still have the guide stashed somewhere. The one thing holding me back atm is getting better case cooling and a better CPU cooler.
whats the clock rate the CPU is at, also a major suggestion, use a IR thermometer gun and shoot the CPU and NB.
Right, my 2GB DDR500 arrived today. So, if I get time this week I'll have a bash at OC'ing my old XP-M 2400+.... MUHAHAHAHAHA!
I have a thermal sensor on the case (not sure how accurate it is) I placed that right into the heatsink of the northbridge and highest that reads is 40 deg. I will have to aquire one of those guns.
