Just wondering if there were any other ways of gettin the heat out of my pc. The temp shows the system at 38-40? is that a bit too hot? and also the case i have is a coolermaster 201. This has 2 intake fans. 2 exchuast fans 1 at the top and 1 at the back. I would have thought this would have been enough too cool the system.

AMD 2100+
Gigabyte kt400
256 x 2 pc2700
tdk cd r
pioneer slot dvd
audigy live drive
wd 120 gig
ati 9000 pro 128 meg
coolerkmaster 201

Any advice would be helpfull

As Jean-Luc Picard says your temp is absolutely fine, my CPU is an 1600xp+, and this is a normal temp for me! I must add, the only cooling I have is via a Coolermaster heatsink and fan, the PSU fan, and the fan on the Graphics card!!!!

I found a little programme on the CD that came with my Jetway motherboard -- Winbond HWDoctor.

This will give a running commentary on both the system temperature, and more importantly the CPU temperature. Gives no advice on what the limits ought to be though!

Hi,
There are some progs you can download, but I got my temps from the BIOS. If you look on this site you can find utilities that will monitor your CPU temp!!!!
