WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!

well it wont hurt and it will drop ur temps if you do a good job.
is it worth it??? NO you might as well but a sp94 for the prescot there so bypassing the swear filter is neither nice nor allowed; you'll hear more from me later -- macklin01 HOT
sould have got a C rather than that E (unless ur going H20)
if u wana spend the time then do it but never oc a presscot on stock cooling!!!!

On a cool day it does 3.2 fine but its just getting so hot this summer that it doesn't want to run cool enough at stock speed. I'd like to get a SP-94 but i don't have the money. would a side fan help much? i have a 80mm fan i can put there. And i don't want to lap the core thats to much for me. The price was 120 for this and a cruddy mobo so i got it and sold the board so the chip was only like 80 dollars.

before u cut a side hole for 80mm fan think about it!!!!!!!!!
do u have a nice case ??? do like it??? if so dont put an 80mm there because you will be running it and it will be a bit loud because small fans need to spin fast to move air.

if your going to cut a side hole for a fan go with a 92mm or the best of all 120mm
then you can controll it with a reostat and it will spin slow and move just as mutch air with less noise.

just stay away from 80mm.
i never knew better and look what i did
3 80mm on the side 2 rear 4 front ya my temps were great but after a month i ended up using 1 front 1 side the rest were unplugged

Gonwee, I am here to tell you that putting a fan with a duct in the side of your case will drop your temps with a prescott(see my sig)

Intel recommends this mod (see my signature again :) ) but without the fan ( you need to use the duct)

Running stock FSB my Prescott ran at 58C to 60C at idle and 68C to 70C under a load and would always shut down.

I made the mod and now it runs at 42C at idle and does not go over 52 under a load using the stock HSF on air and is now overclocked to 3.59

Who said that you cannot overclock a prescott on air??? :burn:

I agree with syberspy9 as I used a 80mm fan and it is loud , try to use a 92 or a 120 if you can

Good Luck
Dave
