p4 2.8 overclock success
I successfully overclocked my p4 2.8 to 3.18 ghz. No hardware or software issues at all. if i went higher i would start having problems. my cpu temp right now is 22C/71F.

why does it run so cool? damn, my processor isn't currently overclocked and it's running at like 42 C

my proc is too. AMD athlon XP 2500+ is running around 40 C
But im getting a thermaltake smartfan II(or vantec tornado) to put on my heatsink instead of the crappy 60mm 25cfm fan that i have on there. that should lower the temp some. i am wondering, can some1 give me an example of what 55DBA sounds like? a hair blower? A jet engine? An F5 "Finger of God" tornado?

you guys realize you are comparing pentium4 and XP temps? they are not the same thing. your processors are running at very cool, normal temps.

devlish96 10-24-2003 02:32 AM

but the 22 C is quite low for an overclocked P4..unless he has airconditioning near the pc or vapochill or something..can you please confirm, jrice.

i live in the tropics and my friend's 2.8 p4 runs at stock and at a constant 34C under full load.

Soloman02 10-24-2003 06:08 AM

but my bios say 50 C and my hardware monitor(in windows) says 40C, so which one do i trust?

jrice 10-24-2003 06:23 AM

well one reason it is so cool is that im running with 6 case fans. They seem to work very well.

devlish96 10-24-2003 07:10 AM your p4 on stock processor fan?
