any way to the problem...i built this comp for my gramdpa :p and when i turned it on to install windows xp home, i got the funny feeling i should touch the cpu copper heatsink to check if its hot. at this time the comp has only been on for about 15 or 20 seconds. it seamed to be kinda warm :shock: (and it wasent on for that long) whats wrong? did i do sompin i shouldent have or wtf?

Did u put silica gel between the CPU and the TT?
AMD's CPUs is always in high tempature(about 50 centigrade), so if it's only warm, don't think about it too much.
BTW: don't u think the RAM is NOT ENOUGH to run Windows XP??

we can all learn from my experience that even up to 256 megs of pc2100 ram, is not enough. your grandfather will revoke all future gifts to you for making him wait so long to type some email out.

Ok pplz for one the here are the requierments for windows xp:

233Mhz (p|| or better recomended)
64mb of ram
3gig hard drive
etc.

and second of all thats my grandpa said thats all he wanted. i offerd to get him more, but he said no. he just uses him computers mostly for selling stuff on ebay, Burning, making home dvd's from his camrera, etc.

soooooooooooo what can i say? that its good enough. :D and thats that.

and i thought the stuff that goes beteen the cpu and the fan is called Thermal Paste? the package containing the glue says "Silicone Compound" sooo im asuming its the right stuff. see most of the time i get the Thermal paste seperate. but it came with my fan soooo.(free :) )

You should really get some numbers you can work with. Possibly getting the program that may/may-not come with the cotherboard to check the CPU temps and fan speeds. If the motherboard company doesn't offer a program to do this, get Motherboard Monitor 5. Google for it.

ThermalTake makes some very nice hardware, and the thermal paste that is supplied is sufficient for better-than-stock cooling.

The only temperature I would be concern with is anything above 60C or 140F. My computers run about 32C or 89.6F full load, 26C or 78.8F at idle. My office systems run at about 45C or 113F and are usually at full load the entire time I'm at work. :twisted:
