Well, that's a known fact that the fastest Athlon CPUs tend to run hot - I heared that the 1400 MHz is yet worse in this respect.
The other thing is, that Linux uses more HW resources, that's why performance is better than with Windoze, but it also means that you are more likely to run into problems when HW is 'nok' (or just sophisticated). I had a lot of trouble with my RAM.
So, once more a general warning: do not buy the latest stuff! I know what I'm talking about since 6.2 wasn't running at all on my Athlon 500 when it was new ....
Hopefully you can fix this setting up our fans ...

Cheers ... Wolfi
