I am current running an Athlon T-bird 1.33 GHz and it always runs at 60+ degrees C. It's been running like this for the past two years and I have never experienced any kinds of problems with it. I am using a cooler master fan/heatsink and have just recently applied artic silver ceramique compound. I also have a front, rear, and pci slot fan in my case and my case temp is around 40 degree C and cpu at 60+ degree C. I dont know whats wrong. Right now during this summer heat, it is running at 68 degree C. Maybe I need a new case since mine is kinda limited in space inside. I know that t-birds normally run hotter than other athlons so is this temp normal?

Well mine runs aroudf 55 degrees c but they are supposed to run hot anyway, just be worried if it goes over 80 as AMD say they can only reach 90 degrees.

I am interested in some decent cooling too I don't thik case fans do the job properly, I mean if I have to I will invest in water cooling.

If your using the motherboards built-in temperature sensors they tend to not be that accurate.

My local PC shop just messed my PC.
When i asked them originally to fit the following:
New ram
They just robbed me. They could only get the cpu 2100 to run at 1300 and the ram i was given was not 333 but 2700 . but i didnt know this until a mate looked at it for me as i aint too sure about insides of PC's

Anyway guys.
If i buy that case then i should also buy a new power supply yeah?

Not if the case has a good psu coming with it, a 400w psu built into a case will be a good investment.

Go for a name brand case like Antec if you can, this way you can insure yourself that your psu won't die out on you.
