OEM Laptop parts?...

OEM laptopparts?... Good luck call the builder of the system and get a new one even off warrenty they will often ship the parts free if it is just a fan. I would run the lappy opened for a few seconds to see in the fan is running, DONOT think about putting one finger on the system when it is like this and don't move till you turn the system off cotton shirt and denem is a good thing to ware when doing this to reduce the static charge grab the power cable and hold it a second or two then turn the system off holding the cable, ot dispell static and the human body cannot feel static charges less then 3000 volts and at 30 you can kill parts in your computer... on some systems even less then 30 v will kill it. As far as the temp reader when you replace the fan on most laptops the reader is build into the fan so if it was the reader then that will be fixxed if the problem continues they I would E Bay the system for parts and start looking at new systems... As far as Intel build Laptops go get a Dell or a Toshiba if you want some real Power for you money gen and AMD Rig from Aser... I like their Farrie Line as they have evrything you will need in a laptop and they will handle some real crazy newer games... there is a few Asers that will handle HL2 and Doom3 not at max setting but it will run better then some towers that are playing the games... Just rember that with Dell you are doning to pay for the better inhouse tech support then you will if you buy something from HP were most of the call tech work is contracted out to a Quebec Canadian ferm where they speak French first and English second, if you are lucky you will get a Western Canadian brack where they Speak English. 90% of all Dell calls go to their Western Canadian Centers and soon to be all of their calls as they are closing up shop in India and going with the higher costs of Tech help in the Canadian and U.S. market. Dell Call centers in the U.S. are for customer out side the U.S. and the Canadian ones are for people out side of Canada as that is how most call centers work. Sony makes some good systems aswell but you will pay alot mor then even Dell and tech help is not that good.

Hello,Yesterday the cooling fan 90b broke inside my laptop.  I heard a low noise like a CD was spinning incorrectly and than my computer overheated and shut down.  Upon restart I got the 90b error message.  Can anyone please point me in the direction of a guide on how to replace my 90b fan, and a place where I can buy a replacement part?  Thank you very much, ThomasBrodsky

A:Cooling fan 90b error message and malfunctioning cooling fan...

Dear Thomas, 90b Error message occurs when there is firmware or a Hardware issue with the fan. Please install the following update on the Notebook. It is the bios update, most likely to fix if its a firmware issue. However, if the issue persists, kindly contact our support center.we will be happy to help you fix it. Cheers!

A:Cooling problem?

You probably need to get some more fans in there to get better circulation. It may help to have one on the side. You can also get fans that go into the slots, so you could put it above or below the card and that would probably also help.

I seem to have a cooling problem with my computer but don't know where to begin troubleshooting this. The following are the specs on my computer.

Operating System: Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 (build 2600)
Processor: 1.60 gigahertz AMD Athlon XP
Slot 'DIMM 1' has 256 MB
Slot 'DIMM 2' has 256 MB

The problem: Under normal conditions I can open XP, get on line for about 20 minutes, then I get a blue screen telling me the comptuer is going to shut down and it starts dumping memory. The reason I think this is a cooling problem is that last night I pulled the side cover and set a small portable fan blowing onto the processor and this makes the problem go away completely.

The computer has a case fan, a power source fan and a processor fan, all of which are working so this makes no sense to me. Any ideas on what the problem might be?

For the stock fan, that can be attributed to a stock cooler, and bad case flow, but it should be lower preferably.

My wifes computer is a Dell Dimension 4550. Yesterday we noticed her cooling fan constantly runs and does not shut off. I have tried going into bios to check temp inside computer and option is not there in bios to do so. I opened computer up and cleaned it really well and it does not seem hot inside at all. Could someone give me some ideas. It has two fans inside. A real big one and small one and they both seem to be constantly running. Is this a problem we should worry about. Help and thanks so much.

A:Cooling Fan Problem

The fans should always be running in order to keep a constant flow of air going through your case. If those fans stop, you will run into cooling problems.

It is normal that they are always on.

A:I think I have a cooling problem, and boy do I need help

I've been messing around system cooling for a long time. Which is why I'm quite active in the cooling section of this forum.

I can't really tell if its a cooling problem, although your removal of the side panel does suggest it somewhat. Usually removing the side panel doesn't really help things unless you have a big fan blowing into the case.

What happens after the computer shuts itself off? Overheating problems tend to be the restart kind, not rebooting if I'm right. And it'll just keep on restarting (since its already hot), shouldn't need to wait till windows load up to do that.

If its an overheating problem, there's a few possibilities:
1. You didn't apply the AS5 properly. Farfetched, especially if you had followed the instructions.

2. Your PSU is overheating. Again, farfetched even if you had hidden your comp under the table with little/no breathing space because the PSU you mentioned is a pretty good one (I'm thinking of getting a small wattage one soon).

3. Your chipset is overheating. Yet again, farfetched. You are not doing any overclocking, and the motherboard's standard heatsink (and fan if there's one) should suffice. Assuming you didn't do anything to it of course.

4. You didn't plug in the fan for the cpu/gpu/etc. Its a simple problem then. Doesn't really explain why it'll run for so long though.

If you're really sure its an overheating problem, when it shuts down, just quickly open the cover and stick your hand on all the heatsinks you can find, and your HDD. Be careful you don't touch what you're not supposed to (live wires aren't too friendly) or you unplug something. Just shutdown and stick your hand into the various parts before doing it for good, making sure you don't hit anything when you go in.

If something is really hot (it'll hurt somewhat) then its an overheating issue. Fix it.

What I think could be the case is that there's something wrong with the OS/drivers or something. I don't know much about it if thats the problem.

And don't fret, all that money you spent are on stuff you can always reuse on new machines (I'm sure people who spend money on watercooling systems migrate those systems. Unless they have alot of disposable income that is. Come to think of it, they would have if they bought a watercooling system and a computer thats worthy of one....)

may be dumb but here goes...

is the cooling fan on my computer supposed to run all the time when the computer is on? it used to kick on and off but now stays on the entire time the pc is on. is there somewhere you can adjust this setting...maybe it was changed accidentally or something?

A:cooling fan problem?

The fans in any PCs I've dealt with stay on all of the time. I guess it's possible that some newer ones may have some sort of thermostatic control to turn the fan on and off but I've never seen them. Maybe someone else will have something to add but in the meantime, the fan running constantly is not a problem.

BTW, if I were you I'd just call Dell and ask if it's normal. You should have a free 24/7 800 tech support number if I'm not mistaken.

I installed the Corsair COOL water cooling kit.By recently I mean, around January. When I installed it, it was quiet, started up smooth, and performaned great. Now I have a problem, a serious one. When I start my computer, the pump starts, but no water goes into it. It sucks the water leading into it, but it seems not enough is pushed back into the resevoir. I wonder, what could be causing this?
my system looks much like this.

I used the coolant that came from corsair, but maybe I had too much water in the mixture. Could it be:
*I need to add anti-algea formula/liquit
*Anti-Corosion formula/liquid

Any help would make my day even better than it started off with, since I got a free frapiccino because they made it on accident.

I can be reached on AIM by my screen name Uberdude2000.

A:water cooling problem

Good Morning WhiteHat.exe, I have never heard of that problem happening!
So your pump is functioning normally but no flow is occurring?
Is the pump located below the level of the reservoir?

Do all components appear proper, no kinked hoses etc.
Nothing can go wrong!!

I wouldn't expect the pump to have to lift a head of pressure to operate, surely it is below the fluid level and permanently primed.

If this were the case and all was well there is however a remote possibility your cooling solution has gelled or has turned to Jelly in one area.

If this were the case you would need to take your machine outside and carefully drain the system and possibly need to flush it.

I thought that fluid was simple corrosion inhibited vehicle radiator fluid. (LOL!)

yesterday I noticed that about every other restart my CPU idle temp would shoot up about 25c. After checking for trapped air and such, I turned to the radiators. I broke out the BK 5500 and had a look

so far so good
This one is actually taken from inside the rad looking out ( that's a light fixture on the ceiling.

guess what the blue thing is? that is a protect plug for the inlet/outlets. I went back and looked in the radiator box and had the correct amount, so it apparently got pushed in at the factory. it does a great job of restricting flow though
While I had it apart i installed a second pump.

Before the plug broke loose and started messing with things i installed some sensors and was running :

Delta temp: idle/load 18c
Rad out/CPU block out 3c

Hi there,
From the moment I bought Dell Inspirion N5-7359-N2-02, The cooling fun is noisy in a way like if it is brushing against casing or something. I thought it is in the fan itself, but the replacement did not solve the problem. 
Here is a recording of the sound it makes. It is not as it is supposed to be, right?

Hi Guys,
I have TOSHIBA Settelite A45 S151 and i am getting this warning "A problem with the cooling system has been detected."
My machine becomes very slow. I check some theads to find out whats going on. Most of them says it may be heat sink or fan. But my fan is working and I cleaned my heat sink properly but still it is giving me the same problem.
Does anyone know what could be the problem?

A:Warning: A problem with the cooling system has been detected

Really you already took apart your notebook and cleaned the CPU heatsink and the cooling fan and you still have this problem? Well the slow down means the mobo is sensing high temperature of the CPU and automatically clocking it down to reduce heat. So maybe you have sensor problem, mobo problem or the CPU heatsink has come loose from the CPU.

Maybe time to taken it in for service.

A:Cooling problem with Apevia Explorer case


Which direction did you place the fans? Are all going into the PC? Is the top one blowing out? Is your power supply a single or a dual fan model?

I think I found your case on Newegg:

What I would likely start with, depending on the location of the case, is on the back 120mm pulling air in and only the 80 mm on top blowing air out. My PSUs are usually dual fan. If my case is in an area where it is close to a wall then I don't want the exhaust air being brought back into the case so I would have the 120mm on back blowing out and the 80 mm on top blowing out as well.

If it doesn't get as cool as you'd like I recommend you look at a different/better fan/heatsink for you CPU. I also saw once someone used some semi-thick plastic to create isolation pockets for the components. He realized that the heat from the video card should be isolated and ducted out without touching the CPU because it will heat the video card. I haven't found the link but it looked cool and and it was effective. I'll try to find it again later.

Good luck,

I have bought a Satellite S50 - B 15U laptop and have installed Windows 10 - it seems to be running ok but the above message appears regularly instructing a return for repairs. I can hear the fans running up and down although the pc health monitor window does not reflect this but shows the cpu temperature at about 45%.

Does this really need to go back or is there a setting somewhere or firmware update??

The cooling fan on my Dell Inspiron 4000 laptop (2 months out of warranty!) doesn't work. Ordered replacement fan from Dell, had it installed locally; still didn't work. With Dell Tech support on the phone I ran the diagnostics program - fan came on during the diagnostic test but error message shows it running at slower than expected rmp's (about half speed). Fan runs as long as diagnostic program is running; as soon exit diagnostics fan stops. Dell couldn't explain reason other than possible motherboard problem. Is there any way to get the fan to run (i.e. software control, etc.) Already updated BIOS as part of fix attempt - that did not help. Am running Windows Me. Current using an external fan blowing on computer to keep it cool, but that renders it useless as a portable. Thanks for any help you can give.

A:cooling fan problem Dell Inspiron laptop

The fan will be controlled by on-board sensors. If this circuitry is damaged, then that could cause the problem.

Possibly the diagnostics forces the fan on anyway, so thats why it will run then.

Since it runs poorly even then, it does suggest motherboard damage. At only 2 months out of warranty I would be having serious discussions with Dell about replacement, and if the device is really "fit for purpose" if it only lasts that long.

Hi, I have a laptop about a year ago. And for 5 months I was a problem with the fans. Go out and the following message appears:

Warning: A Problem with the cooling system has-been detected. Please turn off the computer Immediately, and return it for service.

The strange thing is that the first time that happened stopped working a week, then one month and finally stopped working until 3 months he has now not start.
I have even the implied warranty of the product but I have not thought about sending it because it practically need every week for classes. I can use it perfectly but if I perform actions that require higher performance like playing games or upload multiple videos at once begins to warm up, get the message and if continuous eventually shut down.
What should I do and how I can fix the problem?

Hi Folks
I have a Toshiba Laptop i3 64 bit

Yesterday got a warning message saying a problem with the cooling system has been detected . Please turn off the computer immediately and return it for service.

I am using my other laptop to post this thread.

From what I can see, I think Toshiba has always had this problem around.

The laptop is under the 1st year warranty. So I will return for repair.

Trouble is, I have seen horrendous reports of the repairer wiping the hard disk and things like that.

Can anybody advise me on what the real problem is, so I can make sure they do the job properly.

The obvious thing for me, is the fan needs replacing and maybe a clean out for dust etc.

The machine was purchased 5 months ago.

Thanks for any help.

Updates do not affect hardware. The fact that you reboot is enough to jolt it into working. This is a problem with the fan itself and may need to be replaced. Check to see if the fan is clean and clear of obstructions.

Q: Cooling

Hi all

I need some help. I need to know do I need more fans? The cooling that I already have is CPU Heat-Sink/Stock Cooler (Fan), GPU Heat-Sink/Stock Cooler (MSI Fan), and obviously the PSU Fan. My case has heaps of ventilation holes on the back and on the side and front and three places for case fans. Two 120mm and one 80mm.

Thanks in advanced.


run "RealTemps" program and see what your core temps are. Free program.

Heat is the biggest killer, so why not add the extra fans. if you can add more intake fans and create some positive air pressure you will keep the inside of the chassis cleaner and do a lot for overall cooling.

I'm thinking about buying the lian li PC-50 chassi but because of the sideway mounted psu I'll need a cpu cooler that's not too high.

So I thought about this CoolJag JAC322C

But it says it's made for 1U-servers, does this matter?

A:CPU cooling in PC-50

1U is referring to the height of the rackmount case. 1U is shorter than 2U which is shorter than 4U, et cetera. A heatsink designed for a 1U case would be low-profile, in which case if it can properly be mounted to your motherboard it may be what you are looking for.

I have a few cases that have a side mounted PSU, and sometimes it is a pain finding a heatsink that will adequately cool the CPU yet still fit properly inside the case. For a while I had a volcano 6 with a slimmer fan (A coolermaster fan that was about a third of the height of the v6 fan) cooling an overclocked thunderbird... my lord was it an inferno in there, average CPU core temp hovered around 75 C.

Over the CPU in my computer is a small plastic fan which I suppose prevents the
CPU from overheating.
What I would like to know :

a) Is this fan supposed to turn all the time when the computer is switched on ?
b) Or only when the CPU is in action ?
c) Or only when the CPU overheats ?

I just opened my computer,switched it on and noticed that it is not moving.Does this indicate
troubles ?

A:CPU cooling

Your fan should be active at all times when the pc is switched on - its purpose is to ensure that the CPU is cooled to a workable temperature.

You need to address this problem.

Is there a smell of burning / melted plastic in the case?

Try the connection to ensure that the power is getting to the fan from the power supply.

Hi, I recently bought a new PC to replace my crappy old one... But I seem to have some cooling issues..
When I am just using the internet, email, IM..etc..The temps are fine..But when I exit a game, such as BF2 or Halo 2..etc.. The CPU Temp is around 165 F!! That is pretty alarming to me and I open speedfan and set all the fans to 100%...But then I notice that Fan2 and Fan3 are running at 0 RPM..So I pop open the case and I notice that there is only one air-intake fan at the front of the PC. ( see the attached pic..excuse the resolution...couldnt get my camera to work properly)

It looks like there is one air intake fan that is blown across the CPU heatsink and then to the back of the PC. Would I see a difference in temps if I install a fan in the back?

While running an AMD 3400-64, temperature with a Speeze cooler {aluminum} and generic paste was 49 C. Upgrading to a Thermaltake {copper} and using Artic Silver 5 thermal paste resulted in 48 C. I was expecting a much larger drop as I know of similar setups that run in the 30's . Air flow is good and room temperature is 68-72 F. I know that this is well within acceptable limits but now I am curious. Thanks

Q: Cooling

I had a little problem with overheating so I added another fan to my computer. This seems to work well but I was wondering how you would go about a do-it-yourself water cooling system. Has anyone here made one themselves? How hard is it? How anti-leak is it? Are there any websites that tutorial about this?


Do you really want to add liquid to a system that "seems to be running well"? Most users that cool their CPU with water are the serious enthusiast type with a good amount of experience, who use their machine for intense gaming or cpu demanding apps. If you can keep your machine within acceptable range using air, I say do it. If you must mess with your cpu's heatsink/fan in any way, most veterans will tell you about the importance of the heat transfer medium (heatsink grease, pad, etc.), and following the directions of the manufacturer's medium TO A "T". All the air or water in the world won't help you if you disrupt the proper transfer of heat between the cpu's top surface and it's heatsink. Another forum contributer might be able to tell you exactly what good temps might be, if you shared more of your system details.

I've had my computer for over a year now and suddenly today i was watching a video when it lagged and then all of a sudden the screen went black. I turned it off and upon turning on again, I got the error "bios detected a problem with the cooling fan 902, press enter to shut down" I have the lastest bios as far as I know and iv tried blowing into the slots with compressed air but nothing works.

A:Cooling Fan 902


Your BIOS will automatically shut-down your PC if it detects that it is overheating - in your case, it sounds like the graphics card fan, or other fan, has died which is why your laptop shutdown.

Is it still under guarantee?

I also have an 8800GT and I just use RivaTuner to bring up the fan speed to cool it. The 8800GT stock fan is defaulted at 29% speed when you first buy it. You shouldn't worry too much about the relatively high temperature, because the 8800GT chipset has a high heat tolerance level. I keep my fan at 50% idle, and 80% load, and it never goes above 65C.

Upon purchasing my 8800GT, I also considered getting the AC Accelero S1. It is a good quality passive VGA cooler with a low price and has great reviews all over the web. Many users have reported using that product and having the RAM-sinks stay on. The trick to getting the RAM-sinks to stay on with the stock adhesive is to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the RAM chips, and to apply enough pressure for a long enough duration. Be aware though that the Accelero S1 does not come with MOSFET heatsinks for the 8800GT (even though Arctic Cooling claims they are not needed).

I'm using an hp pavilion dv3-2310ea notebook pc. I've noticed my temperatures rising a lot when i play high gfx games so i think a cooling pad would be best. Which pad would be the best for the laptop i'm using?

A:What Cooling Pad Should I Get?

I have noticed and used two different types. There is one for my wife's macbook: Thermapak - Heatshift Cooler for 15" Apple® MacBook® - White - HS15C
I have noticed that it draws heat away, but does not do well over long periods of time.

And then there is the type with fans. I got at Walmart that was inexpensive, and I would advise against this since it was very uneffective.

If you get one, expect to spend some money and read reviews for it.

Also look to see where the fans are on your computer. You might be blocking the vents if they are on the bottom. you can use a lapboard to raise it up so it gets proper cooling.

I have an ASUS P8Z68 with an i7 2600k @3.4G
and 2 questions if you can help:

1) My BIOS idle temp reports around 45-50C under low load (or whatever the BIOS is using). The following
Real Temp, SIW, Core Temp, Probe II all report 25-30C at idle.
Intel diagnostics and Real temp give good temperature gaps under load.

Asus FAQs suggest disabling Report/CPU C3 & C6 but it makes little difference.
I find the BIOS reading meaningless - any suggestions?

2) I'm using a stock cooler which gives me 70C (not BIOS temp!) when running a video encode for a couple of hours. This will rise when the days get hotter.
I'm think of getting either
a) Coolmaster Universal Hyper 212
or the more expensive
b) Noctua NH-D14

Should I just buy the Coolmaster?

When do you have the best results with fan cooling?
With open case or with closed case?
And why?

A:Fan cooling

The computer works best with the side on.

This is because of the airflow from the front fan to the back/side fans.

Q: Cooling

Hallo thar!

Hopefully an easy one. Just got a new mobo and CPU installed. I wanted to put an intake fan in the front of the case for better airflow.

According to the mobo manual there are three fan sockets, CPU_FAN, PWR_FAN and CHA_FAN. The rear exhaust fan is is connected to the Chassis fan socket. With no additional CHA-FAN sockets is it safe to plug and intake fan into the PWR_FAN socket?

Any advice is appreciated.



no the power fan is special and should not have normal case fans plugged into it.

I bought a new case mobo and proc and im running speed fan to monitor the temp I really dont know alot about cpu cooling Speedfan is telling me im at C and i am thinking is this too hot for a xp im not overclocking it and i dont do alot of gaming this is at an idle My case is open too if i put the side on the temp goes up to C The case itslef has mm fan spots in front and in back right now there is only echaust in the rear I was thinking of putting in new fans Help Cooling intake up front and exhaust in back do i need Cooling Help any special power hookups for that I ve never messed with heatsinks at all but would concider having mine changed if the results were worth the or so so what is my best option getting fans new heatsink the fan spots in the front are under the drive bays i dont even know if they will intake alot of air or not pleaser advise how hard is it to install the fans nbsp

A:Cooling Help

Well you have enough case fans in my opinion. you may want a higher power fan on your heatsink or a better heatsink/fan combo. Depends on what you got. Also a thin layer of good heatsink compound on the core of your CPU. I recommend Arctic Silver Ceramique or Arctic Silver 5. Arctic Silver provides a good how to spread HS compound on their website.

Also, depending on the motherboard, the temps may be off. Different sensors and different BIOSs will give you different readings. My A7N8X with one BIOS gave me readings of 48C at load and the next version of the BIOS showed 60C at load.

I have an Nvidia Geforce 6600 and want to cool it down. However the products I've seen require screwing a fan and/or heat sink onto the video card which I have no problem with doing. My only consern is: my card has a 4 pin power plug connected to the PSU and the cooling units that have been reviewed as worth buying would all render the jack unreachable should they be installed. I don't have the OEM manual anymore and want to know if this power jack is for the onboard fan or for the gpu? Pretty much, will the card work if I unplug the thing? I haven't attempted to fool around with it yet as I'd like to hear from people who have had experience with it and I really can't afford frying my card. Any feed back would be helpfull.

With regards to your problem, you do not want to unplug that cord, it gives the card extra power that the agp/pci-e slot can't give. Look into zalman heatsinks, they work really well and shouldn't block off your plug, although i haven't seen a 6600 but if it's anything like my 6800 you should be ok

What is the normal cooling fan speed for a laptop.Mine seems to run at about 75% most of the time.Is this normal to run this fast or am I getting close to a major breakdown?

A:Cooling Fan

There is no set standard, especially for laptop coolers. They come in a wide array.

Generally though, the smaller the fan the higher the RPM. On a relatively quiet desktop the CPU fan is gonna spin anywhere between 2500-3500RPM. A smaller fan like those seen on some laptops might spin at about 5000+ RPM.

Yet, laptops also have a wider array of fan controllers than desktops again, its hard to pin down whether or not yours is malfunctioning or working just fine.

As long as you can feel airflow hit your hand, you should be fine. The primary catalyst for overheating on a laptop is usually the heatsink itself. Mostly being dust accumulation which is especially hard on laptops due to the already confined space. Laptops that are several years old also might start having problems due to deteriation of the thermal pad or thermal grease between the heatsink and CPU itself.

I Need Some Cooling Ideas For My Computer, withoud adding fans, i have 3 case fans, a tt v7 on my amd xp 2000, and i psu with a fan, i have im my com

2x40 gig hdd's on a raid (both acting as one)

my cpu runs like 59-62 basically idle, 62-70 under full load
mobo runs 44-50

any ideas??

fan placements


Clean out all the dust inside the case, and in the fans. Don't put fans where there airflow will be blocked, like in the front of the case, as usually the hard drives and/or IDE cables will get in the way. Get round IDE cables if you can, and position the hard drives where air can get though. Depending on where your case has spots for fans, I would put 2 in the front, and 1 in the back. Or, if your case has a spot in the side for a fan, 1 in the front, 1 side, and 1 rear. Also, the room the computer is in has to be a a low temperature - if the room is like 40C, then your temps will never get below, and probably not anywhere near 40C.

Those are very high temperatures for an AthlonXP 2000... I have an AthlonXP 1800 overclocked to 2.1ghz (2600+), and my temp is 40C under full load...I have a volcano 8, with 1 side fan, and 1 rear fan, both 120mm. Did your heatsink have any type of thermal paste on it, or a thermal pad?

Of course, you could go with watercooling, but that's a bit much, and a lot of work...and you have to really know what you're doing.

Oh, and this should be in the hardware forum, not games.

For the past two months, I have been investigating methods in getting my CPU to run cooler. My Idle temperature was always at 41 to 43 deg. C. Its an AMD 2100+ Palomino. On this Forum and others, I have asked which HSF was better for my situation and K7 mobo. I was closing in on the Cooler Master Hyper 6+, when I came across two software programs called, CPUIdle and Mother Board Monitor. After reading their specs. I downloaded and installed and configured these two programs for my K7 motherboard. Well, I am here to tell you that my Idle temperature is now sitting at 28 deg. C as I type this Post. For the most part, my Idle temp. is basically around 29 deg. C. Guess what, I stopped looking to get a new HSF. Just wanted to share this with anyone contemplating buying a bigger and better HSF. Have a good day.

A:F.Y.I. Cooling CPU

those programs are software based temp sonsors, not a physical temp probe. They are a nice reference, especially to see if an alternate cooling solution is working effectively. However they are software based, and are not known to be very accurate.

The only true temp guages are physical temp probes (the cost of a quality temp probe would most likely cost more than the CPU that you are trying to keep

As far as your specific temps are concerned, 41C~43C is still a safe temp to run at, especially in an AthlonXP, which run hotter than Athlon64s
