Temp issues and a question.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well i was wondering about some things..

So first of all my computer was running at 3.0 ghz, vcore 1.50v

The temperature at that moment was 32° on MBM5 and Lavalys Everest.
In my motherboard it stated 34°


Now this is the thing where i'm a bit confused about.

Now i overclocked it to 3.4 Ghz, and i upped the vcore to 1.55v.
I go check my temprature at my bios and it states around 39-40°
But when my computer boots into windows and i run MBM5 and Everest then they both state 34°.

Those two programs were 2° off when it wasn't overclocked but now they are 5-6° off .. could that be right ???
Or is it just when my computer boots into windows that my cpu cools a bit down or something .. and gets back to lets say that 34° that those two programs state + 2° so 36-37° ??

or am i just totally wrong and are those two programs way off ?


anyway that isn't realy a problem i assume.


What i was wondering, how high can i go with tempratures on my CPU ?
In everest it says that my CPU is an Intel Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz Northwood Hyperthreading

Hi Sabotage,

The most likely reason your bios reads differently, is that when your in the bios, your cpu has a load on it, not 100% but some load. When your using everest, if your computer is idle, then the temps would be lower than what your bios says. So that's normal.

As far as safe temps, they say stay under 55C under 100% full load on a northwood. Also don't go over 1.7v for the vcore on a northwood, in fact I'd stay a tad under 1.7. It's possible to kill them with 1.7 or more, and happens to some people with northwoods. Under that though you should be fine. You said you had the vcore at 5.5, but you must mean 1.5v, cause at 5.5 your cpu would be a sticky melted goo, lol. Your mobo could never give it that much anyway.

As said above Keep that Northwood CPU under 55 Degrees at 100% load temps any higher you Cpu will start to throttle to cool itself killing performance quite badly. I know this as i have a Northwood running at 3.4ghz stock. Also keep under 1.7 for definate i would only really reccomend taking it up to 1.6 Max just to be safe.

Have you ever noticed that with integrated systems such as Hewlett Packard, Dell, Compaq etc there is a loud fan at the start of the system and then as the computer moves by bootstrap into the Windows GUI (Graphical User Interface) the fan slows down?

Windows NT/XP/2003 has abilities to return codes to the processor that allow the processor to send events at the hardware level to the hardware components that allow for supervision and monitoring of that hardware. Thus the fan slows down if the heat factor is a a certain level.

These features are not functional at the same level as Windows.
