I have just bought a Duron 800mhz with an Abit case KT7A mobo, I have clocked it to 1ghz and the CPU temp is 27c, is this running ok or is it too hot
that temprature seems ok to me as i also run a Duron 800 at 1000 mhz on a Abit KT7A-Raid motherboard @ 1050 mhz and my CPU temp is 32 c , system temp 23 c and is stable.

you guys are luck to reach 1ghz. no matter what i do, i can't go over 972 with my duron.
I am using a Global Win fop-32. and and 4 psu fans on the case
cel950, if you use good memory , hsf and conductive pen it should do 1 gig. If you mess up on the conductive pen use denature alcohol and it would clean up the mess
27 C idle temp is not bad @ all.... you might wanna try the Register 52 hack using WPCREDIT and WPCRSET just for the heck of it to see if it lowers your idle temps... it worked on mine.

I had the same situation cel950 until I changed my hsf (Now running a Global Win fop-32). I do also have a full tower running 5 case fans and am now running stable at 1050 mhz (cpu temp = 37 c, system temp = 24 c. 'Loaded' ) The case is being louvered this week which hopefully will allow me to go higher

I was able to get to 1gig with an FOP32, when I changed to the newer Global Win WBK38 I now run it at 1.1gig along with a 3 / 4c temp improvement.
I have about the same setup, Global win FOP32, 800 Duron, KT7A, 384 MB PC133. I have amanaged to get to 1015 Mghz with it (7*145) at 38C idle, but my temp under full load goes up to 52 C when using Sandra's burn in wizard. It also does not seem entirely stable (could not install Office 2000 at that speed). I may have messed up when I unlocked the chip also, as the 7.5 multiplier does not work (boots up as 7.0). Maybe I need another case fan (running only 1 now)

Running Duron 800@1030 (7x147) Global Win fop32-1. Idle 22C Case 23C 44C full load. 1 x 80mm induction fan, 1x 80mm exhaust fan and 80mm side fan ducted on to FOP + PSU exhaust. Have run stable at 1060 (1.82 vcore)but that is it. Even with 1.85V vcore it is totally unstable and temps 52C @1070
Has anyone done the voltage modification on the Abit KT7A-Raid mobo who is running a 800 Duron and did it allow you to get higher than before
i have 4 fans in my system, duron 800@960 taisol heatsink+36 cfm fan, cpu temp 55, case temp 34
Im running my Duron 800 @ 1050 with a ground fop-32 with a Y-tech fan and five 120 mm case fans on a sperate PSU and only hit CPU temp is 32 c , system temp 23 c now days (it drops another degree if i use a delta on the hsf)

I should use the spell checker more often :/
