I have a P4 Prescott 3.0E socket 478 running at 3.75 GHz right now and I am runing F@H and one Prime95 and I am getting a load temperature of 36C I have a lapped IHS and a lapped BT with a 110CFM fan (Silverstone FM121). I used to get 36C when only running F@H so my cpu would be at 50% load. I noticed it had fallen to 32C randomly so I checked it out and F@H was still running at 50% on the CPU. I just opened a Prime95 and have been running it for about 10 minutes along with folding and the temp hasn't gotten over 36C?!?! I can't explain this, is my sensor going bad or something since all it did was drop from 36 to 32 randomly, and now is at 36 with 100% load? Both Speedfan and Everest say the same temp.Any ideas? I did just take out my vid card and then put it back in after a while, might I have jarred the HSF into a better position? Beats me, I'm not complaining though.
