Intel Pentium 4 3.00GHz Prescott CPU temp so hot without overclock...

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new here and for some reason, my cpu temperature is so hot. I did not overclock or anything and I'm planning to, but what should I do to lower my temperature? The temperature that is on idle is around 55C - 60C and with workload, it gets up to 70+!!! Can someone help me here? I'll do anything to lower these temps and pay whatever it cost.

ok....here goes...its normal temps for prescott...mine used to go upto 85°C...anyways if u have little money to spend go for a good air cooling like big typhoon or something...but if u have the money go for water cooling....atleast big water from thermal take or something better....i am not sure about the price but u can get them off newegg....

anyways...if u r planning to oc i think u need to change them ram....cant get too good results with a combination of pc2700 and pc3200 system will only run at pc2700 levels....

What's your room temp and what's the temp inside your case ?
Also how many fans do you have on your case, what is their size (80mm, 92mm or 120mm) and where are they located (front,rear) ?
Also are you sure your heatsink is properly seated ?

I currently have NO fans on my case and I'm planning to install some soon. I don't know what the room temperature is, but all I know that it's hot because there's another computer in here.

My heatsink is properly installed/seated. Ever since I added an extra HD and changed my video card, my cpu temp went up 20C - 25C. It use to be 30-35 on idle and 45 on a full workload. Let's say I changed my heatsink to a Big Typhoon and applied some arctic silver and also added some fans to my case, how much should my temperature drop by?

Around 40 idle 50 max load I would say.

agree with daddy....BT and some AS5 should help you bring the temp lower but remember that pressies have always run high and you would need to do a clean job at installation of BT and application of AS5..

As it was mentioned, Prescots run hot.....they just do......


BUT, you can lower them.......you need air inside that case, and you need AS5 and a better than stock heatsink.

My old 3Ghz Prescot idled at 40-41c and loaded at 59c with just AS5 and a $10 ThermalTAKE copper heatsink and four 80mm case fans.

yeah
putting some case fans will cause the temps to drop significantly

blowing the same hot air only makes it hotter
