    I have a AMD 64 bit 3200+ and when i turn on my computer to check the CPU temperature its already at about 62 degree celcius. 62?!?!??! thats insane? i check my case temperature read out one one of my cd rom bays and it says the case temp is 24 C. which is pretty damn good. I was wondering is 62 degrees Celcius what the 64's are suppose to run at? also after leaving computer on/gaming it never gets higher than 67 degrees celcius.
    I have a MSI MS-6702 K8t Neo motherboard. room stays cool and (since i bought the computer from a manufacturer) i assume the CPU was installed right.
    Any info guys?
    thanks

    62C at rest is a bit warm. Although it's not terribly out of spec with a athlon 64 with a stock heatsink.. If your planning on heavy gaming with that machine you may wish to invest in some better cooling equipment and paste..

    AMD's white papers on the athlon 64's list normal operating temps 60C-65C..

    Hi gotrootdude,

    My previous post was deleted because I mixed up the temps that were posted....don't know what I was thinking....old age and tired I guess.....I was thinking he was talking about F temps and not C temps and that was why the mix up.

    Anyway, Onyx44, gotrootdude is telling you correctly that it is running too hot for that temp at rest. If mine, I would like to see it much cooler for at rest work.

    Thanks gotrootdude for calling that one correctly Much appreciated and sorry for the mixup in the temp area. Best for tonight I hit the sack...just too tired for this stuff tonight.
