    My Athlon 1800+ is running at 1.53 GHz but idles at ~51 degrees C, is that too hot?

    No, that's fine, if it concerns you that much, get a new heatsink. That's about what mine idled at with the OEM heatsink and fan.

    I have a volcano 7 on it I think...I bought the computer used. I did a little research and I'm guessing my chip has the palamino core which is supposed to run hotter. I'm not having any stability problems so I think I'm fine. :dunno:

    is that 51 load or no load? If it's no load, then that's a bit on the high side imo.

    Running dual Athlon MP's 2000's both idle at 45c with the volcano 7 heatsink. Try and clean up and cable clutter in front of the heatsinc so it can clearly blow of the hot air, and see if you can get a intake fan to blow towards the cpu.
