Yeah, I ran a Palomino (AMD XP 1800+) on the stock heatsink without a fan by accident (was building a friend a computer and forgot to plug the fan in) and it started to smell like something was melting. Luckily everything was OK.

Moral:
Never forget the fan, or run your PC without one (except if you use a fanless heatsink, like the Scythe Ninja)

Hmm , I have a ninja sitting in my drawer, I think I am going to build me a folding rig with it, but I don't have a way to internet to it! Did the fan hurt you? I know one time I was pokeing around inside my case I cut my finger on a fan blade while it was running. I have two 80mm fans ziptied together think in the $3 gpu cooler article in the FAQ section and I was seeing how strong the zipties hold it on are and if the way I mounted it would be good, just when I stick my finger next to the fans to lift them up I accidently moved my finger down I little and then bam! the fan blade chopped into the skin under my fingernail and made it start bleeding a pretty good bit and cause a big problem with day to day computing because every time I put pressure on it, it would hurt! I also couldn't trim my fingernail for about a week. Lesson learned, watch out for fans!, as far as your problem goes I would just either go the easy way and get another fan, or grab you a bigger beafier HS so you can start overclocking! Good luck

Hi i have just been down to PC World and the ''Tech Help'' looked at the fans, saw none were the right size and suggested i looked elsewhere, great. I decided to buy 2 fans (6cm and 8cm) and see if they would work.

I have tried the 6cm fan, its a lot quieter and on idle my temps are currently( degrees):
Motherboard 22
CPU 47
Hard Drive 17
^^ Are these good temps to have while idle the computer has been turned on for about 20 minutes now?

What should i do now to make sure this fan is going to be ok should i leave the computer on for a while to make sure it doesn't get above 60 degrees which is my shutdown temperature, or should i put some load on it and see how it copes.
If i need to put load on will running a game or something that uses a lot of power be ok for that?
again thanks for any help :-)

*Edit*
no the fan didn't hurt ;-) i was just trying to move a wire that was directly above the heatsink, and being the stupid clumsy fool that i am my finger strayed into the heatsink. I didn't even realise i had broken it until it started making a really loud noise and one of the blades had flown right out of my case!!!! Anyway the new fan looks ok and is a lot quieter than the old one!

The easiest way would just be removing the blade on the opposite side to avoid noise.

Same thing happened to me about a year or two back. I had this 15,000 RPM fan and it had a heat diode on it, if you help the diode between your fingers the fan would spin up to 15,000 and it would hum, so one time I was putting another fan in while it was on to see how it would looks (red neon fan I was like) And my finger went into the fan and I got a small cut, but it managed to get alot of blood all over the inside of the case... I wish I took a picture. It looks like a crime scene from CSI . It hurt like a bizznitch. Put a bandaid on it and went back to work. Now whenever I see my neon fans I cover my eyes. Oh and a fanblade got embeded into my hand like 2 mm.

That sucks. Any fan pointed towards the heatsink should work for now, but get it replaced as soon as possible. Was uhm.... your computer on and running when you did this?

I once had a cable being knocked around by my side fan, reached in to tuck it away and BAM pinky in the Thermaltake FingerChopper 512. It was swollen for a good day or so.

Get Prime95 and run the torture test while watching your temps, 47ºC Cpu temp is nothing in the nice range but athlon XP can handle that with no problems, try to keep it un der 60ºC.
