Crazy from the heat

#1

Hello,

My processor runs hot. I mean really hot. with my room air conditioned the idle temp is at 118F case temp 71. However, the last few days I had the ac off and the case temp was up to 85F and my proc at 164Funder load . Is this high temp ruining my proc? What about the case from Koolance does anyone have one. What are other P4 1.7 (478 pins) running at.

Everything about the thermal design of your cpu can be found here.

Your cpu could defenitely be a lot colder with a proper fan.

The case temperature is a-ok.
