Socket 478 Prescot 3.4Ghz Heatsink

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I recently upgraded from a P4 2.8 @ 3.2ghz to a P4 3.4ghz. My old 2.8 would do about 33 idle 43 under load.

When I removed the heatsink and cleaned the gunk off, I noticed a greenish, brown smudge on it. Almost as if it was rust/tarnish on my Hyper48, I could NOT get it off no matter what. I reapplied the Arctic Silver 5 properly and I got temperatures of 45 idle and around 63 load. I've reinstalled the heatsink 3 times and it has been running like this for about 3 weeks. Case tempature is 25C.

Is the hyper 48 not enough, or is it the rust? I'm most likely gonna get a new heatsink, what is the BEST air cooling solution so I can overclock the hell out of this thing! I've heard 4Ghz on air cooling alone?!

Thanks for the help.

So I suppose the tuniq tower 120 is the best for my 478? What overclock speeds do you think I can achieve with it?

Forgot to mention, I'm doing 3.7 right now with NO increase in heat.

It's because I haven't touched the Vcore right?

Would you like some CPU-z and Speedfan screenshots? What's not to believe?

no increase in temps is sorta hard to believe.

(not trying to be mean)

It must be that humidity or something is srewing with it.

But back On-topic

Might it be the thermal throttling? It kicks in at about 58C

hmmm thats actually a very good point.

What do you have it at 25% 50% 75% (throtling)

Personally I made mine as low as possible so I don't have that slow temp change/none

Sry or not believing you
