i have no idea how this works besides cooling your system. Before i consider taking my box to a shop or buying any new products i will apply some thermal paste and see if this works. Since its summer i figure my cpu temps are above average. Ive done research and most people idle at 30-40 and hit 40-60 at heavy loads.
"Sorry I had that backwards, Intel's run hotter.
But 60 degrees is hardly the death zone. But it will reduce the life. The standard "death zone" is 85 celsius, and it will stay that way until they use better materials for processors. Most new processors run around 60 on load anyway, it's nothing serious."
i dont consider a p4 3.4 to be new (2004) : /
I guess the only thing i can do if the paste(5 $) doesnt lower my cpu temp is get a portable air conditioner(300$+) for my room and put it right next to my computer, buy the most expensive cooler on the market (see above) and wait until summer ends... too bad im not rich. this may get way too expensive to just cool a cpu.
