My duron keeps overheating, help!
My durion is running at like 55c right now and my comp keeps locking up and restarting and being highly unstable all around. What can i do i bought a amd duron approved heatsink/fan and still no luck. What am i doing wrong?
My Duron 600 @ 695mhz is at 43*C with the case cover on. 39*C with the case cover off. Make sure you have some thermal compound between the heatsink and cpu. How big is the heatsink? Make sure the heatsink is sitting on the cpu correctly.
Makes sure your voltage setting is set correctly.

Unless U go to the expence of buying a far better cooler than the standard one, your Duron wil run quite hot and 55c isn't the worst of I've heard of, but the locking up is a worry and may not be only heat related.
Have U tried to set your Bios at default performance and lower the Ram timings for a start, also I have my Case running with 2 slot coolers in my spare PCI slots and at full load playing UT or Q3 for hours, my CPU gets up to 49c and I only have the stock fan that came with the CPU.
Also what temp is your Mobo running at? Also could be a reason to try a slot cooler.
make sure you ahve the heatsink properly mounted. you may want to lap the heatsink if necessary. as joel said, make sure you have thermal compound on there
I'm using Artic Silver and the PAL6035--temp did not get about 39' C.
The lockups ARE heat related, if he is running @ 55C. My computer locks up if it goes over 49C. Mine is a Duron 650@850.
Ok guys explain this to me, if amd says the cpu is rated up to 90C max, then why would anything over 50C cause prob? granted anything over 50 is not preferred, it should still function correctly right?
yes, you're right. MTP you must have a problem elsewhere, cause we tested Durons @ 85C and they ran fine. Maybe the heat from the CPU spread in your case affects something else.
The lockups ARE NOT NECESSARILY heat related. I have been running my Duron/650 for about 2 weeks now at over 60C and it's perfectly stable. I have a huge fan/heatsink on and it's fine. He has other problems.
you have a PSU problem.... Voltages are not stable.... that's what it looks like from my point of view
i have to agree with Rotor on this i think it has to do with power supply not give steady supply of voltage to mobo

I too would have to agree with rotor.I had the exact same problem's with my duron. replacing the power supply with an amd approved unit fixed it right up. (now running my 600@ 900mhz)after burning it in for a couple day's it's time to start dropping the voltage.
