As I said in your earlier post, give your Athlon a decent cooling system. A GlobalWin a homemade Water Cooler is a right choice.

Even if you live in Sahara desert, intel processors won't guarantee you that it will overheated WITHOUT a good cooler.

The point is : Choose The Right Cooling System

Sometimes Computer Vendors will pursue 'newbies' to computer world to buy something more expensive without telling you the advantages and disadvantages

Just for the record, I did respond to your other post about the Athlon. I reccommended you get one, if memory serves correctly.:confused:
I, myself, have an Athlon T-Bird 1.2ghz processor and I couldn't be happier w/it. I live in the Sacramento Valley and in the summer it gets pretty hot here as well (maybe not as hot as where you are at), but I have had no overheating problems or BSODs at all. The key, as 404 said, is a decent cooling system. The hotter it is where the computer will be operated, the better the cooling system needed.
sincerely,

eh? i got me an Athlon 1.3, i don't use any cooling save for a case fan, don't use any airconditioning too, yet i've never had any heating problems....nor have my local dealer told me any. :confused:

maybe the "heating problem" the vendor told you about is based on the assumption that you'll overclock it.

hey Miki_Kaoru did you purchase and instal your own cpu and mother board?

or did you go and purchase a pre built computer

if its pre built, it most likely has an active cooling mechanism on the cpu

if you built it your self and only have the case fan, i highly recomend you put a fan on your cpu.

well of course it has a cpu fan/acu, else it would've melted in a few minutes. :p

i was referring to supplementary cooling systems, like the water-cooled thingy. but a big case fan in most cases would be sufficient.

Well I consulted the Authorized AMD dealer to ask him,he said that there were no such problems with AMDs.The guys who told me that AMDs heat up were the dealers of intel.They only had intel stuff so they didnot wanted me to buy and AMD system.

Well water cooling system might bust up the system.I will put some extra fans in my casing.May be a celing fan......eheh

Thanks for the help

sorry miki just misread your post

as for the whole heat problem, my freinds dad owns a comp store and he says that AMD's do run a little hoter than pentiums but he also recomends AMD's instead of pentiums because of the major price differance

Actually AMDs are not only lower in price but they are also good performers.
