My T-Bird 1400 seems to be a little hotter than I would like. I bought it from a friend and he said he had to force it by jumper to 1400 becuase it was running weird under Auto (he never clocked it before, just had to force it by jumper to 1400mhz)

Under normal (idle, its is a server) if I boot it, and go into the bios the CPU temp is around 49 C. Closer to 40 C I would expect. I have a Zalman copper heatsink on it and a 80mm fan pulling air out the back of the case.

I want to OC it a little (not sure how far I can reasonably expect to go with it, and I do not want to make it unstable becuase later on it will be under a little more load (only adding 2 more PCs to the network but it will be a fileserver/media server as well has handling DNS, DHCP, WINS...)

I am thinking of moving it to a case of mine that is slightly larger, and already is set up with a 1 rear, 2 side, 1 top 80mm ports. I am also going to pick up some round IDE cables this weekend.

System Specs:
T-Bird 1400
Asus A7V133 mobo
640mb Ram
GeForce 2 MX 32mb AGP
48 gb maxtor IDE
16x Dual Layer DVD+/-RW
2 Samsung SP1614C 160 gb SATA drives
Adaptect SATA connect controller
3com 10/100 NIC


Current Picture

The server is the one on the left, I am probably going to move it to the case on the right as it is slightly larger

49 C is not critical but definetly too hot for idle processors. I clocked a 2200+ to a 2600+ and my idle temp is 42, 43 C. Of course, the cheapo case needed some Dremeling and extra exhaust fans, but no fancy HSF. Moving to bigger, better ventilated case sounds good and that's what I did to my Sempron. Good Luck.

49C is definitely acceptable when we're talking about Thunderbird procs. Think Prescott.

Overclocking would definatly make the temp go up, and that is a problem. lol

I spoz I dont really need to clock it that much...

Clocking it down to around 1 ghz probably wouldnt change the temp that much would it?

Why would you want to decrease temps even more?

For some reason when I put it all back together and put the case back on it seems like it actually shuts down if it gets too hot. Which is extremely perplexing to me becuase AMDs cook themseleves before shutting off... (wondering if its a Mobo thing).

It shut down on me in the middle of running windows updates. I wasnt sitting at the PC at the time, so I do not know what happened. It shut off randomly one other occasion too..

It's a motherboard thing. Got your shut down temps right? 70C is an optimal temperature for cutoff, IMO.
