Default I have a BOXX dual AMP 2200+ system that i believe is overheating


thanks for viewing my post as you can see im a brand new member. I am Canadian living in Vancouve (A TRUE CANUCK ).

I have a BOXX Dual Athlon MP 2200 system non overclocked on a Tyan Thunder k7 board with the latest 2.11 bios. When i go into the hardware monitor in the bios the temperature of both CPU seems to stay constant at 70 deg C.

The operation manual of the Athlon MPs states that critical temp is 90deg C. Although the CPUs have 20deg before it reaches critical i was wondering if these processors should be running that hot.

could the hardware monitor be malfunctioning? I've blown and vaccumed out all the dust and the CPU fans are both reving at 2100rpm.Since this IS a BOXX system it has been put together well.

Other than the hardware monitor bothering me, this system is ROCK SOLID. This thing can render 3d CG scenes for DAYS and it won't become unstable.
