    I just recently upgraded my old computer to a AMD Athlon XP and I'm happy to see it working without any problems.

    Ok, now on to my question: Can I make it cooler? How?

    The heatsink/fan that I have is a Thermaltake VOLCANO 11+ Xaser Edition. Also, I have two fans, one in front and one in back. When I put my hand to feel the front fan, it was cool. The back fan was cool also. When I put my hand on the back of my power supply, it was warm.

    Now, I will give you the temperatures:

    CPU: 36C (heatsink/fan speed @ 4000 RPM)

    System: 39C

    The two other fans run a default speeds.

    Those temperatures are fine. You seem to have more than adequate cooling. I would not worry about it.

    Power supply generates quite a bit of heat.. hence, it has its own cooling fans.

    You're CPU is running very cool... Mine are in the 50s.
