Ok, specs first: AMD Athlon XP 3200+, completely stock, no OC PcChips W30 mobo 1GB no-name value ram PNY FX5700 256MB Problem... just for fun and yucks last night i downloaded an app called Speedfan. Its similar to Motherboard Monitor in that it just keeps track of temps and the like. Even tho it didnt have my mobo available in its list, it still displayed temps... and my cpu temps were 55*C at idle. I've not been into OC or anything more than just building this pc, so i dont know if thats good, bad, or otherwise. I suppose it could also be possible that those results are completely FUBARd because i couldnt select my mobo, and therefore its reporting back bogus things. Thanks in advance for any input.
