Temp ? on P4 3.6

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Prescott P4 3.6 not OC yet, and the temp was getting way out of control with the stock heatsink/fan so I got the Arctic Freezer 7 PRO and it seems to be great but was wondering if there is a way to get it even cooler with only fans...

I wish I was at home to get some numbers but at full load gaming now it gets to about 60c tops, and idle I think is like 47c, case temp I dunno how to get that number or where...

I see some of the temps yous guys are running and wanna get mine even lower...

I did read that the prescotts run WAY warmer then most anyway but, I want mine cooler so I can learn to OC...hehe

Thanks in advance for any help I can get...

You are correct about Pressy's running hotter.

But i as well was fighting the cooler temp issue about 3 months ago. Was using a XP90 with an all Tornado cooling system. Yes it was really load.
So i started saving the $$$$$ and started to buy piece by piece for my water cooling system.
All together guessing about $250.00 to get what i have now ((Link in my sig))
Temps now clocked to 4.1GHZ with i believe 1.4500 volts to CPU at 30c idle and load is 41c max.

Danger Den is were i got most of my stuff.
If you decide to go water.
All i can suggest is to take your time and do it right.
Nothing like having something that doesn't look good. Besides it a pain to do over again.

Good luck with your decision.

I use the stock HSF on my 650 (3.4 no OC) and with my case 'modded' (removing drive bay bezels, added 80mm intake + exhaust fans) i can get 48-50c idle and 60c load. (sometimes 63-64 EXTREME load [like 2 Prime95's] on a warm day.)
