Guys, I am running into probly the most common problem in the overclocking world, the main problem about my instance is that my cpu aint overclocked (thats why I've come to the hardware board). My chip is running damn hot, I've got an XP2100+ with a volcano 7 (not going much lower than 4000 rpms when cpu idle) attempting to keep him cool, I had been running with the sides of the case sides off since I got it last week (just incase I had to fidgit with more things inside) and its temperature seemed slightly high (43 idle, 48-49 load), now with the case sides on it idles up at 48 and loads at 54, I am slightly alarmed by this number....it's not overclocked at all, and my house isnt very warm either (we have the air on), I know part of it is because I dont have a big case fan, just an exhaust fan and a little fan in the front. I am running this on an abit kx7-333r motherboard with its stock bios. I tried that tweak for idle cooling using WPCREDIT (an article posted up on viahardware.com) , which worked great when the cpu was idle, but the load temperatures shot right back up and it actually cut the performance of my harddrive in half. Do any of you guys have any recommendations for fans, or articles on getting more ventilation through a case or simple tips? Thanks a bunch.
