what is normal for a dual 450MHz modual mine peaks at 60 and idles at 44 (centergrade)

is this passive??

no it has a giga desighns blue led fan in it it has only got to 60 when running a fractal program and when i was installing some stuff.

Iused two copper coins as contact plates with some generic heatsink compound

it froze on me which was odd i'll test it for a while longer

Copper Coins like pennies???? I would reccomend lapping those down until they're perfectly smooth with the processor. 60 isn't unbearably hot in the OC world, but I don't think you want to strive for it, especially if you have gaps like that in there.

the ones i used are old english pennies about an inch wide there quite smooth on the bit that had contact with the die

but using two pieces of copper means you have 4 contact points in transferrence of the heat. i seriously think you are asking for a core meltdown.

try finding a single chunk of copper and then lap it as the other user commented.

good luck

specifically i would like an owner of a daul 450MHz tower to post his/her tempreture

You might have better luck over at cubeowner.com.

I gave it a rigorus quake 3 test and it peaked at 60 on and off 56-60 it's stable but hot
