High CPU temp with P4, Should I worry

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I received a new HP Compaq dx6120M at work. So I formatted it & installed all my regular applications & started folding on it.

The Spec's are:

Name:Intel Pentium 4 650
Codename:Prescott
Specification:Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.40GHz
Number of cores:1
Number of threads:2
RAM: 512MB

Now after almost 20 hours of folding - 2 x texts-only console each is affiliated with its own thread - I'm starting to worry about my CPU temp.




Note: I'm not an expert on Intel early CPU models

Please Advice

Thanks in Advance

I did the same thing with my PC at work, I hope folding burns the stupid D945 up so I can get a new C2D.

What's the ventilation like where you're PC is, I reckon those temps probably aren't too bad for peak and it running twenty hours straight.

Don't worry about it, prescotts deserve to burn in their own heat

You are okay up to around 67C buddy....

67.7C is the thermal design for that processor P4's run very hot.

Don't listen to the people who don't own P4's....they are used to cooler running proc's, lol. I've had my P4 on stock cooling and have run it to about 65C. Nothing to worry about. You won't be overclocking it since it's HP anyway.
