Hi, I just got a xp 3000. When I installed it, my Biostar m7vig400 mobo,only read it as at 160 FSB 1.7Ghz Athlon xp (Tm). It would only read it correctly if i raised the fsb to 200. But then the processor would run at about 48 degrees idle. I then upgraded to a Asus a7n8x and a Volcano 11 fan. Get this...No change at all in the temp. None,not one degree. What is going on?

Which version of the Athlon XP 3000+ do you have? the 333Mhz (166mhz) FSB or the 400Mhz (200Mhz) FSB version? And what is your multiplier set at? I think that were your problem might be.

For the 400Mhz version according to stock settings you should be running with a 200mhz FSB with the multiplier set at 10.5. Try setting it to that and see what it does. 48C isn't really that unsual for a Athlon XP at that speed i'm pretty sure, they do run hotter that the new AMD64's and Pentium 4.

So does that mean they can take a little more heat? Am I safe?

Yeah your safe, 48-50 is pretty normal for a Athlon-XP i think.

Put some Arctic Silver 5 between the heatsink and Processor core. It should help drop the temp a few degrees after the break in period for the AS5. Anyways, 48'C isn't a bad temp for the Athlon XP series. You could get away with higher. I get away with 55'C on my XP 1600+.
