Question about Intel P4 3.06GHZ 533FSB 478PIN PPGA (SL6QC)
I have a big problem with my cpu temp. It idles on 61*C and when i play games the temp goes over 80*C!! So i changed the stock cpu fan with a big copper Zalman fan and the thermal paste. The temp went down with 15*C, but still it is a very high temp. Please HELP me!
First of all. Pentiums are infamus for this, they overclock them to get faster CPU's and they dont get the right heatsinks for them and they over heat.
Do you have system fans?
You should have as many pushing air in as you do out to keep a constant displacement of heat.
Second of all, Go into your bios and see if itt has an option for a temperature Alarm for the cpu. If it does, turn it on.
If the Alarm is going off after running it for a while then you have a problem, the machine will shut off to protect the system.
IF its not going off then you may not be having any problems and your just fretting. Mine runs at about 50*C and is constant and never has problems with heating for 5 yeears now.
You tend to want the out fans at the top and the intake fans at the lower part of the case because heat rises up and is more easily displaced that way.
