Hey Guys I have a athlon xp 2500+ running at 1.8 ghz and it's running at the above temp while idle (no idea what it hits when running games etc.). It used to only have 2 fans and ran over 60 C at idle, but after putting 3 more in it's at 57... This is still super hot I think. Does anyone know if this is normal for an amd processor? Will it shorten it's life? My last computer was an intel pentium and it ran at 38 C while idling.... Thanks!
