High CPU Temp
 
I just built a new PC and here are the specs are as follows:

Intel 3.2 Prescott
Asus p4c800-e Deluxe
1 gig of PC3200 Corsair extreme speed series
ATI 9800 pro 256
420 watt ps.

The idle temp is at 51 c/123 f. At full load it gets up to 64 c/147 f. Is this ok? I have 4 fans running at full speed, 1 front, 1 side and 2 rear. :confused:

That sounds pretty typical.
What are you using for cooling the CPU?

Lou 9th August, 2004 03:25 AM

Stock Case fans, Raid Max. I ran 3dmark 03 and had a very low score of 5981. I do not know why.

SteveI 9th August, 2004 03:47 AM

Temp won't affect the performance of the video.
The 03 score seems good to me, but I guess I'm happy with my 9600 getting about 2500. :rolleyes:

I'm reading people getting scores over 12,000, here is a link:

Yes, but 3DMark03 is heavily influenced by graphics performance, and if you look at the sigs, those people getting over 12,000 are NOT running 9800s. They are running 6800s or X800s. Myself, I simply cry when I run 3DMark03, because I only score about 1,000 points with my little GF4 MX440 64MB. :(

Don't worry about it Giz, I've still got GF2 MX200's. I don't even want to try to benchmark that... ;)

I think my biggest concern is the cpu temp. I would like to slightly overclock 5% but the current temp raised a bunch of flags. Also I read the cpu that I am using is known for burning up, 3.20e Prescott (L2 1gig cache).

Nah. Intel CPU's don't burn up, only AMDs do. Intel has built in temp sensors and will automatically slow the CPU until temps drop back to operating range. BTW, this won't happen until around 95C. You can try it yourself. Unplug the fan on your HSF and watch the temps steadily rise. When it reaches a certain point, it will slow itself down. They call it thermal throttling and it's built into every P4 including Prescott.

BTW, I wouldn't worry about your temps too much. I have an AMD T-Bred running 24/7 at around 70C all the time. It's been running fine and AMD CPUs are notoriously more sensitive to temps than Intel.

I had a geforce2 GTS Pro 64MB get 6600 in 3dmarks 2001se

Gizmo 9th August, 2004 10:24 PM

I get not far from that with my GF4. I think I get about 5500 or so. But 2001 is more of a system bench than 2003 or 2004. IMHO, Aquamark is the best all around system bench that I've run into so far.

still gotta admit, that GTS pro is a awesome card for it'sa age....hehe

SPQQKY 10th August, 2004 08:26 AM

That temp is quite high for Asus P4C800-E Deluxe. My chip OCed to 3.5GHz doesn't go over 46C under load. The P4P800 and P4C800 series are notorious for low cpu temp readings. You are probably more in the 61C idle and 74C load. And the cpu throttling occurs at about 65-70C even though Intel claims 95C....this has been proven time and time again.

Sorry bud, you have a P4C, that is a mega cool running chip in comparison to a P4 E(prescott)(Presshot)

Prescotts love heat, they are not known to run under 50c often, even at idle, that is with stock cooling..

I agree, I have one, too. Four processing pipelines for the price of two. Alas, Doom3 requires multi-expensivo Vidcards. Dunno about H-L2. Yet.

Doom 3 ran pretty good in 400x300 on the GF2 GTS pro
