    I have an Msi K7t266 Pro 2 RU Mobo with Athlon XP 1600, and a coolmaster processing fan. The case I have is a Antec 1030 which came with 3 fans one pulling two pushing. I upgraded to a 350W powersupply. My question is according to PC doctor the software that comes with my board, that my processor is running at 37c (100 to 104 degrees), is this normal? What is standard?

    Any advice would be great

    AMD runs hot so that is way below normal. Anybody would kill for 37C... or atleast I would. Apperantly you have your cooling solution set up really well. I don't know AMD very well... but I am pretty sure idle should be 45C or so, load should be 50 to 55C. it shouldn't get much more than 60, but if it does, it will be fine. I would worry if it gets to 70 or 75. That is hotter than any processor will run. Those AMD should make it to 80 or even 90 no problem, but don't push it. They run very slow at that temp too...

    90 is the critical temp for any processor. If I were you I'd set your PC Doctor to shut down if the cpu fan stops, drops below 2000 rpm, or goes above 78 or 80C... and also set it to warn you if the fan drops below 2500 or 3000 rpm, and cpu goes over 75.
