Possible mismatch ?

I do builds on a regular basis and discovered something which might be of interest to others.
I installed a Thermaltake Volcano 12 onto a PC Chips 848ALU mobo(I did this at the customers request - I always use Coolermasters). In BIOS, Hardware Monitor informed me that Athlon XP2400 was 58C, this is at the stock 266Mhz FSB. Under load things got worse. I changed it for an Aero 7+ and temp was back to 32C at boot in BIOS. I subsequently fitted the Volcano 12 in another machine with no problems. Perhaps this is one of those wierd mismatches you hear of. Anyway I thought that I would post it onto the Forum to see if anyone else had experienced something similar.
