    Hey everyone!

    I've got a question for all P4 3.0C owners out there :
    What is the average (normal?) temperature of the 3.0C CPUs?
    Please state idle temp and temp at full load.
    what P4 HSF coolers do you recommend?

    Im worried about my P4 rig as it runs at 'bout 55d C to 60d C, I did not OC my CPU, at these temp range, who would? I have an AMD 2800+ oc'ed o 'bout 3000, temp's at an almost cool of 38-44d C. My P4 rig is as follows :

    Intel P4 3.0C (@ 800FSB)
    MSI 875 Neo FIS2R
    Thermaltake Spark HSF (no temp control, constant full speed)
    Radeon 9700 Pro (no oc)
    Pinnacle Pro PCTV card
    2x512 megs PC3200 DDR400 (5,2,2,2)
    Seagate Baracuda V 120 gigs HDD
    Pioneer DVD ROM
    AOpen DVD RW +
    Black Cube 350W PSU (will upgrade to 450W)
    Chieftech aluminium case (5 case fans running)

    Any HSF recommendations would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!
    (I'm leaning towards Thermalright SLK 800/900 U based on my great experience with my AMD setup. )

    Noise is not really an issue as I'll be using the P4 in my living room. Oh yes...I just remembered something, the SPDIF on my board does not work!
    I've tried hooking it up to my my pioneer XV-DV77 via optical cable, no go situation, absolutely no sound. But this isn't a real issue as I can always get a sound card with SPDIF. Back the heat issue, is it normal for a cpu to run so hot? If I had known that a P4 would run so hot I would simply have gotten a 3000/3200+ Barton.
    Does anyone else have this hot cpu problem?
    GL, what do you think of Swiftech cpu coolers? I wouldn't mind trying it as I've heard Swiftech has one cooler that compares favourably with the SLK 900U. It's so frustrating to put together a dream system and running into this heat issue problem. Any suggestion, anyone? (air coolers only, I'm a bit wimpy about using water coolers)

    Dunno, to tell you the truth. I doubt they have anything better then the slk900 with a 120 mm fan, except maybe the one with the peltier attached, though I don't think that't really worth messing with. They're probably pretty close, however.

    CPUs have been heating up quite a bit lately, and 100 watts in quite hot. I remember a thunderbird running at 1.5 GHz could generate 55-60 load easy, with a relatively decent cooler for the time. Of course, coolers have improved since then so who knows. Unfortunately I'm not really current on p4 temps... though I believe the max temp on the 3 GHz is about 10 watts more then the 3000+.

    The spark7 is a mid-range cooler if I'm not mistaken... I'm sure a 900u would get you at least 5 degrees, maybe more like 7, even.

    Thanks GL :D

    I appreciate the time and effort you've put into your response. Looks like I'll have to go with the SLK900U (is there an 800U model?) and an 80mm Delta fan. Looking for a good cooler in Singapore is a real pain in the ass! Guess I'll have to spend a bit more time and $ to stabilise my system:mad: .

    I'm hoping that it's a bios and onboard monitor(MSI fuzzy logic 4) error, may be a long shot but I can always hope, can't I?;)

    No way my P4 2.4Ghz cools to a 24C at idle, 35C at full load with the stock fan!!! :D

    Well, a 2.4 is not a 3.0.. The max on a 2.4 is 75 watts, instead of 100 watts. Though the difference between the two is not enough to explain the heat differences you're getting... perhaps thermal paste is not applied correctly? His case is certainly cool enough.

    Yeah, there's an 800u, and the difference is not all that great...

    im running a 3.06 ghz pentium 4 and it is at 49 degrees idle, then when i get running a game, it gets upto about 63 degrees and i decide that it is too hot and turn it off. i am using the stock fan. I am going to buy a koolance pc2-601W case with watercooling from www.infotechnow.com Hopefully that will get me better temps

    My P4C 3Ghz was running @ 45C Idle and 55C Full Load w/stock Intel.

    I have since replaced it with a Zalman CNPS7000-Cu running and default speed (2500RPM) @ 35C Idle and 45C Full Load.

    Looks like I have some room for overclocking ;)

    24C Idle and 35C Full Load sounds a bit like a fib to me, especially w/stock. But I have been wrong before...

    I just ordered a new comp:

    450 Watt Antec power supply
    P4 3.0 Ghz 800 Mhz FSB
    MSI 875P NEO-FIS2R
    2 intake & 2 outtake Thermaltake SMART CASE FAN II Variable Fan Speed Control 8cm
    2 512 MB PC3200 DDR RAM
    Onboard RAID enabled
    2 80 GB Seagate Serial ATA drives
    MSI MS-8216 16X DVD-ROM
    YAMAHA CRW-F1 CD-RW
    Chaintech GeForce 4 Ti4600
    Cyclone Blower Case Fan video cooling
    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 6.1

    I dont think i'll have any cooling problems, also is a 450 Watt power supply adequate for my setup?

    You should be fine w/ the 450. If it wasn't for the 2 hard drives I'd say you would be okay w/ 350. But they suck power, so stick w/ 450.

    well, my 2.53 533mhz runs at 26*C idle and 31*C Full load so .. and thats with stock cooler and my room is at a constant 22*C so that might be the reason .
