I have a system in at the moment where by the CPU is getting up to 65 degress and the system is shutting down.
Is this too hot for it? It is an AMD Athlon XP 2400 on an Asus MB.
Thanks as always,

If the system is shutting down, that is apparently too hot. The amd maximum die temp is 95c I think, but thats much warmer than you should ever get, or you're toasting all your other components as well
Are you overclocking? 65 is pretty warm. I'd say you need a better heat sink and/or more/better case fans.

How do you cool it? The temprature is abnormally high.

CPU too hot
I have a A7N8X Deluxe w/ 2400xp. When I overclock @ 144FSB,2200 GHZ, My Temp is 54C. If you are not overclocking,

Few months since you asked but as the thread has been revived I'll post an answer.
It's not always your cpu at fault when temps begin to rise. You need to make sure the inside of your case is as cool as it can be.
You can start by sorting out internal fans.
A good working fan system is to have a nice balance between intake and exhaust. So with that in mind a 120mm fitted to the front bottom of your case as intake, 120mm fitted to rear adjacent to cpu as exhaust.
If the 120mm are decent enough (i use AKASA Amber series which spin @ 1400, kickout 48.4cfm and are very stealthy at only 18dba), they will keep your system nice and cool.
Some people like an additional 80mm on the side but that can affect the internal airflow. So what I have found to be better is to reverse the side fan to exhaust, and fit a duct to the side on the inside so the hot air from your cpu is directed out of the case.
