My athlon 2000 cpu keeps overheating on my Gigabyte main board. I have replaced the heatsink and fan but still have the same problem, the heatsink is able to cope with a 3000 Athlon cpu, mine usually runs about 75 - 80 degrees, maximum should be about 55 DEGREES. Can anybody help me please... thanks Richard...

Thermal grease and copious fans. Is 75 degrees high for an Athlon? (now you know why I stuck with a P4!).

over heating is a problem for all cpu the faster they go the hotter
i have just installed a coolmaster hhc L61 quiet
and my system is idle its in low 40s

one other problem i changed my case because the old one had no extra vents or places for extra fans that made a differance and it means if my 3d card does get hot i have an extra fan on side panel to blow air onto it but i have not needed it not yet(that may change next time i upgrade
my 3d card)
good luck

It sounds like either a poor sensor reading or you have forgotten to connect the fan to the mobo;-). Never seen a 2000xp run so hot with a good heatsink and fan in what ever room, unless it is in a greenhouse!Does it shut down when it gets this hot...or are you just concerned at the temp in bios or mobo monitor?

I have got a xp 2000 and in this hot weather it runs at about 47c-54c after being on for about 12 hours. It sounds like a faulty sensor to me. How are you checking the temperature?
