Thread Starter 
My sys is a p4 (psu- unbranded 350w)
2.4ghz prescott stock cooling, stock speed
256MB Ram
80Gb hard
CD rom
riva tnt2 32mb vga (my main vga now broken)

My problem is its temparature.

when turned on after few weeks, in bios (asus) it said
CPU 64'c & MB 39'c Fan 3600rpm

in win98 (idle)
CPU 55'c MB 39'c fan 3700rpm

in 98 (load)
CPU 70'c MB 42'c

1. isnt it too much ?? (i cant rember how it ran 2 months ago.)

2. software says 12v rail is actually getting 11.8v why ?

3. when i went for a cleanup the retailer taken off the processor and cleaned and reseated without thermal paste. is it ok??

4. what is the normal idle temp for a prescott 2.4 ??

5. why does bios shows more temp than in windows98 idle??


please reply as you can, waiting for a quick reply.(sorry for adding many questions)
thanks.

download speedfan might be a bug in your bios and the readings are off

1. yes it is tooo much
2. 11.8v 12. same thing
3. No he should have put thermal paste. i would take it back and ***** like heck
4. should be a little more than ambient (room) temp.
5. you typed under load the temps were higher. That is the way its sappose to be because you cpu is being used.

thanks.

so no thermal paste is the problem.
post #4 of 8
well it is, but even without thermal paste it shouldnt be 64c in the bios. you might want to consider 1.) taking it back and *****ing at whoever built it. 2.) buying some arctic silver 5 and a big typhoon. your psu is also not that great. 11.8 volts IS NOT 12 VOLTS!

you may want to consider upgrading this as well to something above 450.

i looked for thermal c. on cpu. but there wasnt any.

1. there was a thin sticker on the stock heatsink (on the face that contact with cpu).
is it any other kind of thermal c.? (i think it is a processor in a box - prescott 2.4ghz)

2. does it want thermal compound??

1). It is not thermal paste, it is thermal PAD.

2). Thermal Compund is MUCH better. Pads usally come with boxed CPU's

And for the person that thinks a 12V should read 12V while in windows, you are misinformed.

Volt reading apps are TRASH, most are WAY off, BIOS is the only place to get a real reading, i get 11.96V or 12.03V while in ITE smart, but i will not trust that.

I wouldn't trust voltage readings, either. Get a multimeter and measure your rails that way. On my computer, speedfan shows anywhere from 11.4 to 12.8 volts. I was freaking out, thinking that's way too much of a change. I hooked up a multimeter, and it showed that software was way off. You'll probably feel better after you check that.

About the thermal pad, most are junk. Clean it off and put some AS5 and it should drop your temps a bit.
