then i say... muhahaha
Does any of u know ZALMAN cooling systems ??? they are really good at making fast lownoise supercoolers...
I have a AMD Athlon xp 1900+ and thx to zalman the temp. is 38 celsius when idle and MAX. 50 celsius when i play my games.......
BTW..... 20 db.... is that much ??
(have magic shield + whisperbox installed in/on my cabinet..)
I have a Zalman too, works very well, nice and quiet. 20db is below a whisper, so no, if you're accurate that is not too loud.
My hobby: collecting US coins
I have an Athlon XP 1700+ (1440 mhz), I never had any problems with it until this month (I bought a good heatsink and fan)...
The problem arise not from the heat (it's closer to 40ºC outside and I have no AC), last year in the summer the temperature reached 47ºC, and no problems at all
In the house (summer) it's 10 degrees bellow comparing with outside...
I thought I should take a closer view of my cpu...maybe the fan was dying... (My system was crashing more than usual...)
I take out my copper heat dissipator (heatsink) and it was FULL of CRAP.. consistent DUST...allmoust cotton.
No wonder my cpu was getting 65-70ºC...
In the process I broke up my motherboard (excelent with a decent chipset not via but SIS, never had any problem with that chipset, Now I am having problems with my soundblaster live...
I have to to open SEVERAL PROGRAMS to prevent scratchy sound...
really crap chipset VIA makes...
(KT600), I should bought another SIS motherboard...
that bothers me...why I didn't?
It was my sweat that might had broken that motherboard...I was with extreme care, but ....I was sweating like crazy...
maybe some drop with magnificent conductivity properties (water with salt)..
Now, I am having no problems...(only that annoying sound problem)
system 47ºC cpu 53ºC
I guess considering the enviroment temperature this is excellent.
I will never buy an Intel cpu again..
this XP is working like mad...
24h per day 7 days per week!

Mine is XP 2400+ and the Temp. is 40C and it goes higher and higher. So i have to switched it off when the temp reached 60C to avoid crash. Does anybody know where to get Zalman Cooling system or any other good cooling system within India ?? Thanks.
