help!! pentium d really hot!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was recently (yesterday) given a tower that has a pentium d 805 2.66ghz cpu in it. At idle the cpu is at 70c. I know its only the stock intel heat sink but 70c at idle with no overclocking is really hot. not to mention the heatsink on the southbridge is hot enough to burn your fingers. this computer has never been overclocked and is free from dust cakes. im planning to buy a better heat sink but im still worried about the southbridge. i don't believe airflow is the problem, 1 exhaust fan in back , 1 intake in front, and airduct on the side for the cpu. i dont know what to do or is this normal and am i just a worry wort.

Aftermarket cooler on CPU.

Good TIM on both.

If that doesn't fix the issues, That is one lemon PC.

Pentium D's are really freaking hot. Hotest Intel CPU im pretty sure. I ended up getting a cheap cooler like the Cooler Master hyper 212+ on newegg for it

Definitely, especially if the paste on there is old and dried out (which it likely is). However, Pentium D's are just really really hot running chips.

It could but still the CPU runs really hot. Theres no way around it. A stock intel HSF can't really keep it cool very well. There were even some old sony PC's with pentium D's that were factory oil cooled because of it.
