Intel pentium 4 630

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Its a 3ghz cpu and at the moment im overclocking it at 3300 but idle temp is at 35 but whem playing halo can go upto 45-47 i have stock cooling.
I want to overclock it more but dont want to burn it out as money is a big issue for me.
What sort of difference will thermal paste make, if it worth ordering artic silver 5.
Also do you think it is worth me getting a new heatsink if so can someone please recommend one under 40 pounds.
If any else has a 3ghz cpu can you please tell me what you are overclocking at and your idle temp, if its good do you think you would be able to share the information.
I use aibooster to overclock however mulitplier is locked so i can only change cpu external frequency, cpu voltage and memory voltage, i think i have a couple more options in my bios but im not sure.
Thankyou for reading.

Hi mate

I've got the same cpu and my idle temp right now is 40°.
That's at 3.3 without having upped the Vcore at all.

For Prescotts, max temps are 65°C, however trying to keep it under 60° is what most people do.

So imo, your temps are just fine.
My temps at load go up to 50°-55° (and this is in winter - summer was 62°)

And yeap i'm still as unlucky as you - on stock cooling.


As5 would bring your temps a couple of degrees down after it "burns in", it won't magically drop 10°, but it does help..

You processor can get into the high 70s low 80s and still be fine.

Silver-based thermal paste is well worth the investment. I am using the Dynex paste and I have a 12C drop in my core temperature. Just make sure you don't put to much on, as it may insulate your processor. Put on just enough that you can't see through it...

Another suggestion would be to go to your local hardware store and get some 3" ducting. Hot glue the ducting to a 80mm fan on one end, and put right over the heatsink. That will supply a lot of cool air for your processor. I got a 8C drop in core temp by doing this. You can buy the ducting online, though I am not sure where. I might take a picture to show and post it on here. It is a VERY each do it yourself job.

Definately try to OC through your BIOS...

ok thanks guys, mixed replys on the heat but never mind, for now should i use any thermal paste as my dad will say it is a waste of money however he will use the thermal paste we alredy have.
do you think it is worth me getting this, http://www.eclipsecomputers.com/prod...de=HFT-CLP0114

As i want to be doing some serious overclocking, also im getting a dual core in a couple of months so i might need it to overclock that?
Thanks

Thermal paste a wast of money!? Thermal paste is one of the cheapest and most importend components of any cooling system!

Just to clarify: At 80°C your CPU starts to do thermal throttling (making it run slower as to prevent overheating).
you DEFINATELY don't want to reach those temps

And yes, the BigTyphoon is one of the best aircoolers out there, definately worth the buck

You can get that, but you would see a much larger performance boost from some silver based heat compound. Go to best buy, they have some for about $12. Then see how your temperature is. If you are still not satified go get your typhoon. But because you are dealing with air cooling don't expect you temperature to get real close to your ambient.

I ran my 550 at 70-80C for 3 months until I got my thermal coumpound. It runs great. If you look at intels website they say that uppers sixties is the highest recommended temp.

I have run my 630 at 3750 Prime95 stable, no problems at all. Temps are about 40/56 at idle/load. My first advice would be to OC through the BIOS. The AI Booster is pretty neat, but I have notice more problems using it than setting it mannual in the BIOS. I'm not sure what bios options you have, but if you don't want to OC your memory, you must set it separatly. My settings: FSB = 1000 and ram = 667 (stock setting). If you do not set you ram settings, it will automatically OC. Feel free to IM me on MSN if you wana chat. Good luck, Wes
