That is working OK.
STill was able to touch the heatsink without blisters.
From the specs the AMD produces less heat than a Intel Pentium.

I replaced the ISA videalcard (realtek) with a PCI-S3 and
had none of the described problems again. everything works, X-windows

It wasn't software after all...
