    sys. specs
    GA-7N400 mobo
    amd 2800+ barton
    768 mb DDR 2100@ 133MHz
    Nvidia 6800 video
    350 wat powersupply

    My CPU (2800 barton) is reaching temps of 95c (amd quotes it's max temp @ 85c)! The bus speed is set @ 166 & the multiplyer is set @ 12.5. Computer randomly shuts down from overheating.

    I swaped out the 2800+ for my old 1800+, my system now runs much cooler and more stable (47c-51c, still a little hot but acceptable I suppose).

    I think my barton might be toast seeing how it has a brown spot under the core, however it still boots. This fuckin processor has never ran at the correct speed, the highest and most stable I have gotten it is 2200+/1.6GHz should run at 2.08GHz.

    Anyone got any suggestions/ideas?

    I've got a kickass thermaltake heatsink but I suppose I could try adding some artic silver to it.

    heatsink probably wasn't seated right if it was running that hot. Or your computer case and heatsink was full of dust.

    make sure the air is going out of the case somehow - some guy i helped last night has had similar problems.
    I assume you already know this, but just make sure.

    95 fucking degrees C?

    The poor thing might be shot to shit...

    You need to recheck your intake and exhaust flows in the case, as well as making sure you have a paste seal between the cpu/hsf. Also make absolutely sure the hsf is seating correctly and not on one corner or something silly.

    Chances are, if theres already a brown spot and the cpu wont even run at default settings - you may need a new one.

    What are you using to read those temps?
    I could be wrong but I believe the AMD XP chips fry at 90-95C

    Thoes readings came from the bios' pc Health readings for V core, system, & CPU temps. I about shit my self when I saw that temp and reduced the bus drastically. Regardless the 2800+ runs at about 65c-71c at any reasonable speed(much to hot). AMD quotes the 2800+'s maximum temp at 85c, lol.

    What kind of case do ya have?

    FYI I have the new Aspire X-Qpack Small Form Factor Case, an AMD XP 2500+ OC'd to 3200+, and a cheap-ass TermalTake TR2-M1 CPU cooler I had lying around, and coupled with some AS5 I get 55 C under load.

    And my video card is the X800XL AGP, a.k.a. "Long John Silver" and it fits fine and doesn't impede airflow.

    My PSU is the ThermalTake TR2 430w PSU w/ dual fans. Word to the wise, kids: It doesn't fit. Too long. It's an act of God that I made it fit.

    The Q-Pack has EXCELLENT airflow. Best case I've used to date...the symbol of innovation.
