AMD Athlon XP 1900+ Overheat

Probably still just a cooling issue. If you sniff this part you usually get the scorched metallic smell (not always). bowmar, Jun 23, 2003 #2 Rockn Joined: Jul 29, 2001 Messages: 21,334 It would probably not even boot if the CPU was indeed fried. AMD Athlon XP 1900+ overheat, dead? Check This Out

This is with a Volcano 7+ on median and no airflow other than the power supply. Additionally, I hope AMD continues to evolve the Athlon series, as I think they are far more advanced than those Intel Pentium IV chips. I know it cannot be any of the truly big boys (like my favourite Zalman 7000) maybe someone can recommend a compact unit that gives best cooling?

The mobo temperature is often around 33C The CPU temperature would often be in high 60's.

Sounds more like the motherboard or memory, have you tried swapping the memory out ? We have the power supply fan and a case fan sucking air out and the volcano 7 on the CPU. opinions welcome... Must say though if the cpu was fried you would not get post at all.

Agreed - today’s cooling methods are ok in most situations, but as chip makers continue to up their speeds and as users are demanding more output from their systems, there needs With fsb set to 100 Mhz the temp is about 38. However, the new Athlon XP Thoroughbreds did this and also had a decreased die size, which meant less surface area to dissipate the heat to the heatsink. http://www.osnn.net/threads/amd-athlon-1900-overheating.45860/ I have been told that Athlon XPs have a bad problem of overheating and melting down.

Hence we don't see a significant decrease in CPU temperature with the decreased CPU voltage of these CPU's. (3) The Athlon XP has several architecture changes, when compared to the Athlon his comment is here Jack Scott Bartley23-08-2002, 10:12 AMMy Athlon XP1700 ran fine using just the plain heatsink and fan that came with the chip.

A friend of mine told me to replace my CPU/Heatsink with a Volcano 7, is this a good idea. Computer Maniac Current System: Intel Core 2 Duo Q9550 @ 3.83Ghz with Zalman CNP9700TN, 8G OCZ Reaper PC2-8500 HPC, ASUS P5Q Deluxe, AMD HD4870, Soundblaster X-FI Extreme Music, Duo OCZ Vertex NO crashes.

averages between 51-55 degrees idle and goes a bit higher when playing games.

If you have room then put one in there. Jack tweak\'e23-08-2002, 12:38 PM>normal operating temp is between 40 +45 Degrees.] CPU temp not case temp.

Cleaned that up and it still locked up. -I thought it was the hard drive, so I tried a DOS boot disk with scandisk. Removed all the old thermal material using carb cleaner and ethanol (from the cpu and the heatsink). It would randomly lock up, sometimes staying on for an hour, sometimes for 20 secs.

My cpu is now running about 10 degrees cooler than it was. Noise is irrelevant because this machine is about as loud as they come. my one cent. if its not an XP it sounds like you have a 1.2ghz t'bird. -=JM=-23-08-2002, 11:35 PMWell my 1900+ hits 46-47 under load with a case temp of 40.

Still it has given reliable performance so I would probably go for any of the current atholon cpu's minus the 2700+ range, I would probably take a wait and see approach it sounds like you don't have enough case airflow. Mainframeguy, Jan 7, 2005 #3 leedogg Gojyone kawaiiiiiiii! Other WTG for me is to strip out all I can easily take - certainly CPU, Optical Drive, and HD - possibly everything except case (this seems crazy, because retains some

Depending on the PSU you have the stealth could just be blowing around hot air. You need to pull air into the case, not just suck it out. provided you use a half decent heatsink and have a case that has a decent cooling solution then you will not have a problem. The color is just a little darker.

just make sure the heatsink is fitted properly and preferably have the 3 lug clips instead of the single. -=JM=-24-08-2002, 08:31 PMHave a look at the Vapochill (http://www.vapochill.com/) cases that have I assume you guys are using artic silver or some other quality goob with the combo? Gamer -Antec 400W power Supply -Windows XP Ok... It runs at about 40-50C. 2.) The room temperature will effect your cpu tempurature greatly, so try to get a fan on the computer if you live in a hot area.

The other option is creating an exaust hole and putting a fan on top of your case.
