Hi ppl
can someone advise if the AMD XP cpu runns hotter than the T/Bird if so what are the expected temps for an 1700 & 1800 - no overclocking involved

I get around 48c on my 1900+ with a Dragon Orb 3 which is actually a little high. (Full load) I haven't done anything to fix that heat prob ... YET.

48-52c depending on ambient temps. My 1600+ is running at 68c fine but it's a little clocked and the board reads 8-10c high.

If it gets into 70c you're in trouble. :(

Hi Tom
I found that they do/did run hotter.
Most of my XP1800'S run at around 50c under full load,
now most of these have a better hs/fan.

I have been seeing reports that new XP's being sold that are
running cooler than the early ones.
Something to check on.

My expeirieces confirm what Dewill is saying.
It seems to be a mixed bag depending on what you get. I don't know if its the "stepping" (don't even know what that means) or what in the process that makes the dif.

I have gone through several XP1600s these ladst few weeks fro work PCs, cliets I've built for and a node or two. There is a rather large variation in temp under load even with the same MOBO and CPU fan type. For the most part, I find them to be much cooler than what others are reporting. I've never seen one get higher than 55c
