I just built a XP 1700+ system with a Gigabyte ga-7vrxp motherboard. I think I have a fairly decent cooler and fan but my temps are reading around 77-80 degrees c. ANyone have any suggestions on how to bring this temp down or is this a dangerous temp?

can you be specific in what cooler/fan you got?

It's called a Kingwing. 2 ball bearing, copper heat sink and evercool heatsink compound.
Excues me for complaining, but I hate it when someone posts a topic like "Help".

and also, are those temperatures during idle? or while you're playing games?
and how are the fans on your case?

Well, I've never heard of Kingwing... is that the HS/F that AMD ships with the XP processors? You might want to invest in a new HS/F. Also, do you use thermal paste?
BTW, how hot is the room where the computer resides?

I did use themal paste but not sure if I used enough. The room that the machine is in is around 65-70 degrees and I have 2 exhaust fans and one intake. The idle temp of the box is running at about 33 degrees c but the cpu temp is high. Oem proc so I had to purchase the HS/F seperatly. Everything seems to be slower than I'd like, I'm benchmarking around 3800 for cpu and pretty low with the memory too. Any help is appreciated.

Yes...77-80C is a lot high for the CPU. Maybe you should reset the heatsink and see what happens. Maybe reapply the thermal goop.
If that does not work I would get a better heatsink. A volcano 6cu or a volcano 7+ would be good for the lower noise ones.
And with the thermal goop, all you have to do is put a bit on the corner of the CPU core and drag is along with either a razor or credit card so that it is a thin layer on the core.

I had a thin plastic film over the heatsink...DUH...Anyways it is running at about 45 now. Thxs for all your help.
