i have a 2.8G now overclocked to 20% with my asus p4p800 SE board. the temp is 37-40C i got a loan of a P4 3.06 from a friend and it runs hot does all chips higher then P4 2.8 run hot?? I wanna get a bigger chip and over clock that one but not a 3.06 cause it was running verry hot

I believe that the faster the clock speed, the more heat there is....so if you get a faster cpu, you might have to get a new heatsink/fan...

Just my $.02

How much hotter?

As you go up in speed the chip will run hotter, a good quality fan will help maintain the temp.

Anytime you you overclock a processor or anything for that matter, it will generate more heat than stock. Overclocked processor's need a better fan than what it came with. Depending on what fan you currently have, it may be big enough to handle a faster processor. If you are still using the stock fan that came with the processor than you need to upgrade the fan if you plan on overclocking or getting a faster processor.

Is the borrowed 3.0 cpu a prescott? That would explain any large bounds in the heat output.

All CPU's run basically the same at stock, in any given categorie, that is. All Northwoods run about the same stock, all Prescotts run about the same stock, etc etc. While pushin more hz through a processor will cause heat increase, upping vcore (which is necessary for maintaing stability at higher clock speess) further adds to the heat factor. If you're looking to upgrade, and temps are a concern for you (which they should be for anyone OC'ing ), then I would recommend an 800 mhz FSB Northwood. Going with something in the 3.0-3.2 (or even 3.4, if ya got the $ ) will give you substantial performance improvements over you current 2.8, plus give you HyperThreading. At the same time, the Northwoods run cooler on average than the Prescotts. I would still recommend some better-than-stock cooling (like these guys said) for your OC'ing endeavors.

What mobo do you have, rcmpayne? Depending on the chipset, going to a 800 mhz FSB CPU might offer additional performance gains, above and beyond what I've already mentioned, that might further help in your decision to upgrade.

I know why it runs hotter
  1. It's got a higher clock, compare 2.80ghz to 3.06ghz, 260mhz difference
  2. Compare [email protected]=3.06ghz to [email protected]=2.80ghz
See what i mean.

All the 3.0's I've seen are have a 15x multiplier, not 23, unless it's an engineering sample with an unlocked multi.

^The 3.06 is a 533 mhz FSB CPU...therefore 23x multiplier.

^^AFAIK, all CPU's of the same type run about the same temps at stock. I.E all northwoods, in similar conditions will produce around the same temps at stock, regardless of speed.

Ah, 3.06. Now I see. But aren't they discontinued? I only remember them being sold for a short time.

Newegg's still got 'em. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...116-155&depa=0. Also worth of note, the 3.06 is the only 533 mhz FSB CPU with Hyper Threading.

IDK if they're discontinued, but it wouldn't surprise me.
