The reason for this would be the temp. I have no idea if a 60c idle temp for a CPU in the socket 939 and being a Toledo is considered hot or not.
That sounds like a false reading man. The CPU should idle at around 20-35 degrees depending upon your heatsink/fan, ambients, etc.
Are you getting that temp from within the Bios? Coretemp? Speedfan? Everest?
At idle, you should be able to touch the heatsink itself and find it slightly warmer than room temperature.
