I am running a P4, 2.8 cpu with 512meg of ram. I am getting a temp of 74C/165-170 f in the processor zone as shown when using Intel Active Monitor. I have applied new thermal compound(arctic silver), moved around cables making sure they aren't blocking too much and attached the case fans directly to the power supply unit which also is new.
The temperatures still remain the same. Regarding the fans I have 2 in the back and one on top. At this point it seems I should try a new fan/heatsink combo. Currently i am using the intel stock heatsink/fan which I believe is not the best thing out there.
Any recommendations as to what fan/heatsink I should look into or perhaps other things I could try to bring these temperatures down some?
Thanks in advance for your help.
