    I just checked my idle temps even after the comp has been off for a bit and they were 55C. Is that really bad? Should I add like a couple more fans or what?

    55 or even 60 degrees centigrade isn&#39;t disastrous for an athlon xp...

    if you&#39;re worried you might want to think about fitting a new heatsink and fan

    I have a whole bunch of old fans laying around so couldnt I just mount them all over the inside of my case? How much will the temp drop if i added 4 more fans?

    You can&#39;t just stick fans inside your case, you need air flow...
    This is how mine is setup...

    Alright everything is good. I just put in some more fans and and more ventelation and my temps dropped alot. So i decided to overclock it. Now my temps are around 53C when im actually using the computer. I overclocked my 2100 xp from 1.7 GHz to 2.0 GHz, is that to much or should i leave it?

    Wait a minute here.

    In just 5 hours you installed a bunch of fans, reassembled your machine and then clocked it up by 300MHz?

    Have you run any benchtests at all?
    How&#39;s your stability?
    How are your load temps?

    Your PC sounds like a timebomb.
