My 2500+ barton runs fine at 200fsb, but my temps seem a bit high. Even at stock speeds I'm over 50c, at 200fsb I run 68c idle upper 70's loaded, sometimes 80c when stressing. I bought an aftermarket all copper cooler with a larger/faster fan but it didn't help a whole lot. Yes the heatsink is installed correctly and so is the as5. I'm on a gigabyte ga-7n400 with award rev. f6 bios. How long you think this cpu will last at these temps? I've had it for about three years now overclocked roughly 25% of the time, alot more here lately with the newer games. I've also done a few extreme benchies at 2.5ghz with system locks around 90c. The cpu works fine right now (firstname.lastname@example.org as I type this) but you think I should order a backup now?
