    does this warnat adding heat sinks

    okay bios temperater reading utility is giving me the following readings.

    the cpu temp is usually around 25 C, I assume it is cool enough with what I have. It is an intell p4 1.6 which I have a hunch is horibly under clocked, 3d mark 2001 says that its max core clock speed 2.5 ghtzs

    anyway it says the system is 30 C. Is this reason enough to add a sink and if so where should I add it. I belive the north bridge already has a sink. Here is my board

    Hah, i'd say no. That's plenty cool; my system is always round 5 degrees warmer than my CPU and I don't have any case fans.

    I had a case fan but it did no good. I just leave my case open.

    Mm, curious; what is the process of overclocking and how is it done?

    Those are pretty sweet temperatures actually. Nothing to worry about at all.

    I typically run about 50 degrees on my CPU and around 40 degrees for the system temp. Oh, no case fans at all either, and it's a Athlon 2200+ in a case made for a 800 MHz PIII

    I wouldn't worry about temps untill around 60 degrees CPU, and about the same for system.

    How do you know what temperature your cpu/system is running at?

    temperature is read from bios on mine.

    Hit del on boot up-leave pc on for a few hours first....

    go to advance settings (or whatever) and BINGO! temp is displayed right there for you..There you can select shutdown temp etc etc.


    That PC mentioned is like a fridge IMO.

    Mine runs happily and steadily at approx 47 degrees. It 1900XP AMD with a big sink and big case fan. Yours is v cool
    Such is life.

    thats it Im getting rid of that stupid processor fan and putting the lid back on. I can't stand that noise any longer, especially if it is unnessary.

    Depends on the CPU - Pentium 4's start getting in trouble around 50 degrees C and should be running aroun 30-35 degrees (or less if possible). AMD will generally be fine up to and around 60 degrees, but of course the lower the better.

    My P4 (1.4ghz) CPU just died recently after running at a sustained 55C for a couple of hours. I hadn't noticed but the clip that holds the fan to the CPU mount had cracked and thus the heat sink was not operating properly.

    Hmmm, guess I didn't notice that he said intel. At any rate, even for intel, the temps are still good

    The worst P4 is the P4 Northwood ("A") 1.5GHz, it craps out around 66C. The best is the P4 Willamette 1.8GHz which is good to about 78C

    But nah, close yer case, put on the quieter fan, and don't worry about it I have a Volcano 7 on my CPU. Pretty noisy on full blast, but dead silent at it's lower speeds.
