    Just upgraded parts of my old computer rather cheaply
    new case SuperCase 106 (w. extra USB front side connectors)
    new motherboard DFI-AK74ec
    new CPU cooler
    2nd case fan
    new CPU Duron 800 Mhz (could've went faster but it's all I could do on budget)
    128 MB of PC-133 (yeah, yeah should got DDR)
    all told after the old parts were sold off the upgrade cost only $128 USD.
    My old boards never monitored the CPU temp before. What is the normal operating range of a DURON 800?
    I'm getting approximately 32C at idle and approx 40C under full load.
    The board temp has never climbed higher than 27C and usually sits at 25C
    Is this bad, good, ugly?

    That's about what my system sits at, too. No problems here.

    You should be fine there. Most motherboards/BIOS that I know of don't care until you get into the mid 50's.

    Those temps are fine. I've jsut put a 1.4 Athlon in my comp, at to start with it maxed out at 63c, but I've tinkered a little (changed to a better heatsink and used a heat compound called Arctic Silver) and it's gone down to 54c max (still a little high, but I'm working on it [​IMG])

    My PIII 600E runs at around 24c idle but hits 41-43c when crunching MP3 conversions in Lame.
    Mobo temp (Asus CUBX) is always around the 26-32c range depending on room temperature.

    Thanks guys,
    I've already started tinkering with my case. Got some sheet-metal cutters and removed the slotted cover for my blowout fan and replaced it with a wire grill. That has made a huge difference, I can really feel it pushing the air.
    My board isn't really overclockable (you can only bump up the FSB and not the multiplier(that sucks)) so I'm quite comfortable with those temps now knowing others.
    Thanks again for the replies
