I have an Athlon 700 and a K7M, I have had them running at 820 reliably for a good month now. CPu temps at idle are 48 C* though, and wondering if my pitiful 80mm side-intake fan and psu outlet fan are enough to cool the Aavid twin fan HS on it. Any ideas on how to speed it up on a very tight budget are welcome. I would also like to let everyone know that lots of money is not required for a good video card. I have a Viper V550, which came out long before the Viper II or the Viper V770, I then installed it as a Riva TNT by Nvidia and t runs like it was just that, with respectable framerates considering its a free card. I get 60 FPS on Max Payne on full quality and 640 x 480 x 16. Good enough for me til I get a better card. Not bad for a five year old card, huh?
