Dear Overclockers and experts,<br><br><b>When i check my bios, it says that my cpu is running at 40c, its stock i didnt even touch it, is this normal? and what is NB or SB (i think) hyperthread? its under "chipset" and is at 800 MHz, i have the option to rise it to 1000 MHz should I? my case led right now shows cpu at 28c. Thanks for any help!</b>

i think that 800mhz is your fsb or front side bus jumping it to 1000 is a big jump but i think ur processer is supposta be at 1066 stock, and the 40c could be normal it depends on the processor, my old p4 3ghz idled at 40c, also did u apply the thermal paste correctly and make sure the heat sync is properly mounted

no this isnt my built (sutom) pc, its my other ordered pc (retail).<br><br>
so i guess they applied it correctly, so do u think i should i should increase it by 200 MHz? my led shows my mobo at 28c. btw waht i NB and SB hyperthread??? when mine is at idle its somewere in the 30c's but my led again shows it at 23c its always off by 5c i guess.

40C on idle on stock is a normal temp. Its actually quite good, I've yet to get a processor that gives me 40C on stock...<br><br>
I don't think you have anything to worry about, but if your going to overclock i'd recommend getting something else.

it's supposed to run @ 1066 so just set it to there and see what happens.<br />
I'm 99% sure everything works normal, but if not you can just set it back in BIOS

What site did you order from? Did they overclock it for you?

40C Stock is relatively normal for that CPU. Your North and Southbridge are on the motherboard and are apart of the chips that make your chipset as a whole. Your chipset Controls the hyperthreading ability on your CPU.

The BIOS temp. reflects 80% of the full load, so regardless or your CPU you should be just und 50c @ full load so there is nothing to worry about if your not intending to increase the vcore.
