Old T-Bird 1.4 Running hot
Just for kicks I decided to try that new Ceramique from Artic Silver. Well, so far hear is what I am working with.
Abit NF7-S v1.2 Latest BIOS flash
T-Bird 1.4GHz @ 1.53GHz
Crucial DDR266 @ DDR280
Huge Copper Heatsink with 80mm fan @ 3,000 RPM
Well. Im running idle at 62.50 degrees Celcius
Before, the CPU was running 53 degrees celsius @ 1.53GHz and DDR280. What is happening with this Ceramique thermal goop??? The site says it settles in about 12 hours but why did my CPU temps jump almost 10 degrees??
Know whats worse???? The room temp stays around 72 degrees Farenheit AND I replaced all cables with round cables!!! Makes no sense. Has anyone else used Ceramique from Artic Silver??? Any results out there???

so what you are saying is that you applied this new paste, and your temps went up, or after the 12 hours it went up?
Perhaps you didn't have enough, or it dried up? What about your voltage to the CPU [too high?]
CPU fan slowed down? Lots of possibilites to what happened, might just try removing the goop you have and try some AS3 or just another load of the stuff you are using.
***also, did you flash the bios during this period of time? it could be incorrectly reporting your temperatures***

Pull the lid off and feel the heatsink. If you acn keep your hand on it for more than 20 seconds without jumping away and screaming it isn't that hot.
If it feels cool to the touch it is fine, if it feels around room temp or a little warmer than that is as much as you can expect with active cooling._____

You should keep your CPU under 50. If it gets to 60 your gonna have problems.

You know something? I didnt read all the BIO flash info. It was a separate file no included in the flash itself. I am updating now. Will now see what happens. Thanks
