i want to buy amd3200+ prosser but i m affried with the heat prob in amd pc's so tell me about that.
Thats and all is pure B.S that dealers say to scare people away from AMD.
This is a amd 3200 64 right? There is no such problems with it. Infact it runs a lot cooler than p4 prescotts
just go ahead n buy it dude ...
Right now, comparable AMD chips run at least 10 degrees cooler than comparable Intel chips.
My AMD 3000+ runs between 50-60C's. It has dropped to around 47C when the weatehr was cooler and went to around 60C when it was hot and running full speed. The motherboard sets the fan speed as slow 50-55, med 55-60 and fast at above 60C. I think if it ran all the time at the faster speed, the CPU would remain much cooler.
U better go for Athlon64 3200+ venice core, E3 or E3 revision, they are hard to find, but available, just jump on the retailes head for it, maybe u have to place an order, but going for venice is the best choice even if u don't overclock
U can identify venice, by checking the OPN on it, the model number should be
ADA3200BWxxx (E6 core)
E6 is better then E3, but not a necisity, add a 400W SMPS from colorsit, or VIP as they are cheap & good quality, I check a colorsit with a Multimeter a few days ago, when a friend of mine was buying a PC, with A8N-E, it's really efficient & gave about 360W on 400W claiming
the stock cooling is good enough as long as u don't overclock,
also turn on the Cool & Quite feature, it's a big temprature decreser, for more info take a look here
saurav is right get a venice core and post he wrote on coll and quiet is a must read and dont worry amd is the way to go but just be aware get a venice or san diego core because in futre if u want to fill all the foure slots of ram then the core matters the older core like winchister had a problem handeling and stability isuue when all the foure slots were filled

Man 51C, are u sure u have enabled Cool n Quite, also U bette get atleast a 400W SMPS, the CPU is heating up at only 1% usage, it should be ideally at 41C, or have u already worked on it a lot
also add a side ventilation fan if possible
I am not sure it is measuring the CPU temp correctly because the heat sink is not hot just slightly warm, the north/south chips are much warmer. Room temp is 29C's since the samsung is idle and not running. The seagate is running but not loaded. Not sure what to make of it. This CPU has never gone under 48C's even with the covers open. And it was not hot at all.
