Default Re: cpu temp too high?

For a HSF recommendation, I am getting this one soon http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835150033 for my 2 P4 systems. It's got good reviews and it's copper. Probably one of the best for it's price ($20). I can let you know how it works out in a couple of days when I get them. I'll be using AS5, not the stuff it comes with. Both of my P4's are 2.8GHz Prescotts.

Tell you what. I've got the same CPU myself and It ran 36C idle. I had 9 fans and a generic heatsink/fan. I'd personally recommend you to get a generic heatsink/fan that spins in the 4k range. Now, that CPU sits in my SFF and under load doesn't get higher than 57C...which I find too high compared to 50C.

Reviews on it are good. I'm just not willing to spend that much money on a HSF for my P4 system now that I got a C2D.

Don't get a generic one, I got a stock HSF on my Prescotts and they both got not so great temps.

I'm a bit of a Zalman fan boy I'm afraid. I have a CNPS7700-AlCu on my P4C800E Deluxe board, (granted it is a Northwood core so runs cooler than the Prescott, it idles at 33C)

I'm sure the CNPS7700-Cu would improve your temps.

a true folder was helping me with my problem yesterday too, so he knows my story, but i was havin a problem with the stock 4 pin and ended up gettin the zalman.(thats what i wanted from eharing from other people, not just folder) i was having problems cause i had temps in like 70's now idle on regular processor is like 20-30 and processor cores 1 and 2 are on 10 idle and maybe 30's under game playing. i would recommend it from what i saw.

well since i have limits to how much i can spend, i cant really get a zalman, instead i just got an antec one and its going from high30s to low 40s idle and 45-50 on load( which is good enough for me)
