CPU temperature too high

Hey everyone =)

Not quite sure where to post this, so it ends up in the spam section.

I just upgraded my computer a little
and added a new processor + cooling fan.
processor: AMD XP 3000+ 333MHz (old motherboard still A7V333)
fan: Arctic Cooling Copper Silent 2

Now my problem:
Everyting is working just fine,
but the CPU has a constant temperature of 69/70°C (~156°F)
which is definitely too high!

Any suggestions besides buying an additional fan?
REALLY happy about any help!

Is it clean? You know, free of dust and suchlike? Did you apply the heat-transfer stuff on the chip right?

If only we forever had the chance for another day...

Then the pain from the past will fade away.....

definitely clean and the stuff on the chip was adjusted right.
the fan is working just fine as well .. I thought my fingers would freeze off
when I held my hand only close to that part of the computer! ^_^;

haha sammo! you sure weren't cold during winter time were you! XD

Jesus christ dude. Get a heatsink for that bitch! If at all possible, try getting water cooling for it too.

Wow that is amazingly hot, and I thought my 53C was high, I am with Jinzhou I would try water cooling, but that can be pretty expensive. So my thinkin is, that maybe you forgot your thermal compound, which is a pretty key element, so go and buy some Artic Silver and a little dot on the cpu core will make all the difference.

I have the same problem. My cpu temp, is like a constant 58 c. I know it should be much lower than that like in the 30's. I applied artic silver to it today as a means of reducing the tempature but it still remains the same. 57+ . Do I need a new fan + heatsink ?

I have like some kind of hardcore copper heatsink and an unruly fan. I run a 1.6 AMD and i never go above about 32 degrees. I suggest going with Newegg and the following:

it's a nice little 8 dollar fan that should keep you cooler.

just get a better heatsink, since stuffs are prone to fail and degrade after a while

If anything that's going to make the airflow worse and increase the temperature.

Actually that is not quite true, I have all the panels taken off of my case, and it have lowered the Temp by about 10C. The only negative effect that I have had is an increase in noise while I sleep, but I have gotten used to it.

I would recomend a better heatsink. Depends on your budget though. Thermalright or swiftech or alpha

ok, that's it .. my computer is dead!
actually my harddrive is gone .. everything IS GONE!

I'm writing this from my daddy's computer,

Anyways! I will buy more stuff for that vile computer of mine now.
So thank you guys SO MUCH for your advice!
Really appreciate it!

*tight hug*

You might have put the heatsing reversed, so that the indent on one of it's edges doesn't fit to the socket's bevel. And did you put away the blue plastic cover?

OMG...liek I've bean banned cuz I'm n idiot. DUH ARMY GAME R0X0RZ!!1!!!!

Looks like the case could be too small, ... you can have a uber fan on your CPU but if the heat can't go nowhere it's no use.

make sure you did apply the correct amount of thermal grease. too much is bad.

I feel like thanking all of you once again for your advice! :)

I will buy a new case and fans tomorrow, had to wait for this month's money first ^_^'
I basically can't change anything about the temperature, it's all the "fault" of the processor.
It's simply overclocked .. due to the old 333 FSB.
If you buy the same processor with 400 FSB there's no problem,
but I didn't want to buy a new motherboard, so there! *sigh*
Vile computers .. they are a too costly hobby! XD

Anyways .. thanks so much once again!
*bouncing all around you guys giving each of you a hug*

Get a better fan. Or put some more fans in the case. Still it is very starnbge, considering that my athlon 64 goes around 45-50 .... maybe the case is iin some place where it cannot disperse heat ..
