    AMD cooling

    I've got a client's PC here- AMD Athlon 1.0 ghz. Kept crapping out- turned out to be bad (read- cheap) power supply. Replaced that with an Antec True Power. OMG- they give you enough connectors in there to wire up your house!!

    Anyway, installed Sandra, and checked CPU temp- it's running about 66c/150f, w/no load. This seems way too high to me. It has an el-cheapo Orb cooler on it.

    Thoughts on temps, and a reasonably economical CPU cooler??

    coolermaster heatpipe heatsink should be pretty cheap and work well, dunno about the noise level.

    Thanks for the tips, guys. How about my temps?? Isn't 66c/150f too high? Shouldn't I try for around 130-140??

    Sweet. I'm just headed out to pick a cooler up, and some Arctic Silver. I'll see if they have one. Gotta' live with what CompUSA has, because I want to get this thing back together and back to her today. Fortunately, they've started carrying a lot of this stuff in the store. I'm sure the price won't be as good, but at least I can get it today.

    Thanks!
