I have built many systems. Every now and then I run into a system I have a hard time cooling. I put together a system last night. an Asus a7v 333 with an AMD xp 3000. The temps are about 55 celcius idle. I am using a Thermaltake Volcano. It is huge with a copper heat sink. I am also using Antec's silver compound. I took the fan and heatsink off and reset them to make sure they were sitting correctly. They are on the cpu properly. Any suggestions? I have the amd fan and I also have a coolermaster Aerocooler. Thanks in advance.
