    i decided to underclock it back to original settings. but the prob is, even after all the bios settings are set to "optimal", the temp is 36-38 idle, whereas the original temp of the comp was 34. wtf?!?! do i need to reset the cmos jumpers? but doesn't that do the same thing as reseting bios? help??!?!?

    maybe it's still warm - are you taking the measurement straight after resetting the defaults?

    Overclocking the chip can cause the resistance of some internal components to increase. When you reduce the clock speed, the increased resistance remains, the result being increased temps. This effect happens naturally with processor use, you have simply accelerated the process.

    so does this mean my process won't last as long as other processors?

    don't think its anything worth panicking for, its only a degree
    has the climate changed? the room temperature can affect the processor temp easily

    well, i'm in chicago, and recently, the weather been's a bit hot. yea, guess ur rite, my room temp is like 10-15 deg F hotter than the time that i took the temp of 34 C. rite now, since the temp isn't much different, i changed the clock back to 2.6. same temp. idle is 38. so i'll c wat happens and c wat i can do. wat's ur temp?

    Your room temp is probably the cause of the higher cpu temp in this case.

    Don't worry about temps in the high 30s and 40s, these are quite normal for amd chips (and intel chips for that matter). Running the cpu slightly hotter accelerates the burn in period, but does not itself cause premature processor failure. If the processor is going to fail, it will fail anyway, and you may cause it to fail inside the warranty period rather han outside, but the temps you mention are no sign that the processor is about to fail.
