Yeah, those prescotts are really hot. But they do some mean overclocking if you find a way to keep them cool .

yea i would definately drop it back down 60c + is never good for processors. your asking for trouble running it that hot. Look into the xp-120 and a good cfm fan to bring ur temps down so you can oc because prescotts oc like crazy

If you ontario, Open up your windows and run a vent to your cpu... the temps tommorow will be -31 WITHOUT windchill.. so basically almost -40... lol...

How do you find old threads like this? If you look in someone's profile of started threads it only goes back a certain number of pages.
