XP 2200+ temp?
What, do you think, is an average temp for an Athlon XP 2200+? I was just wondering so I can compare mine to that and make sure my cooling solution is okay.
about 50+ Celsius load on average cooling. The Rev A Tbreds run HOT!
This is where my signature would go if I wasn't so lazy.
Also consider your pc's environment:
How cool your own "cooling solution" will allow your XP2200+ to run depends not only on the heat sink/fan, but also your ambient conditions (room temperature and case/motherboard temperature). Even the best heat sink/fan can't keep a processor cool if your room is at 85°F (29.5°C) and your case temp is even warmer than that.
I've got an XP2100+ running a wee bit faster than a stock XP2200+, and I am able to keep cpu temperatures within 17-18°C of the motherboard/case temp. If my room is cool, mobo temps run 23-24°C, and my cpu stays below 42°C (at 100% cpu output, running Seti command line client), when it's warmer and mobo temps approach 30-31°C, then the cpu will run around 48°C.
If you ask folks here what is a "safe" temperature to run an XP2200+... you will invite a lot of opinions and controversy... this question has been asked and debated many times.
For me, I like to keep temps no higher than 50°C whenever possible (somtimes in the summer, if the A/C is off, I do run at 52-53°C). Is this "50°C self-imposed target" mandatory, probably not, but I never get BSoDs and lockups, either.
Exactly... it's all a matter of your HSF, your airflow, and the actual room ambient temperature.
