Changes every boot? WICKED!
I can't believe that p3 gets so hot, i thought old pentium's where
exceptionally cool

2. well it is MY computer :P

Ya its pretty bad ass, someone asked me what it ran at once, i told em to guess between 600 and 650, he said 640, i told him to turn it on and off till he got the one he wanted :P

3. howdy,
His CPU's average temperature is 158F,
Mine is 98F
aaaa oh aaa yea i knew that :>|
i alway use temp c so i didn't even think about temp f.

::itld hides his face in embarassment::

M.R.

4. alot of people use C....i used too.

Correct me if i'm wrong but

F = 1.8 * C + 32

is the formula for making C into F correct?

5. Europe uses Celcius, dont really understand the logic of fahrenheit, what is it based upon? 100 Celcius is the temp water boils

6. well 200 F is water boiling so.....

Then you're formula isnt right
1,8 * 100 + 32 = 212

8. Fahrenheit to Celsius Conversion Formula (degrees F -32)/1.8 = degrees Celsius

Celsius to Fahrenheit Conversion Formula (degrees C X1.8 ) +32 = degrees Fahrenheit

boiling point of water = 212 °F

My Athlon 2200+ runs at 49 °C, or 120 °F. That's warm. Considering it's stuffed in a case designed for a PIII 800, I'm not surprised. If you're seeing anything over 140 °F (60 °C) than I'd be VERY worried if I were you

Oh, and from a few pages back. FSB speeds are 100, 133, 166 and 200, 266, 333 (,400, 533 for P4) respectively. Of course there are also 66 and 33 (?) MHz busses, but those are a little old /

9. my cpu has been at 158F for almost two years :P

212 thats it, so my formula was right.

The pentium 4 is quad pumped and so it might have a high FSB
but it sure isnt as a fast as it looks.

My 486 runs at 33 mhz FSB

11. The P4 system i built has a 400FSB. Not too bad number wise, but i expected more than it gave me, honestly.

As i just said, P4 are quad pumped so it looks like they have
a high FSB, but an XP with 200 FSB outperforms him at eas.

13. Hopefully the Duron with a 133FSB will run nice with the Radeon DDR and 512mb ram

That doesn't depend on the Duron but on the Moterboard,
But newer motherboards have fewer and fewer incompatibility's.
It'll work.

15. Well it should be pretty game-decent without the V5, because the DDR has a 128mb graphics engine i believe, and i figure 32MB of DDR is better than 64 of SD.
