How cool is too cool?
at idle my cpu runs 25c
moderate surfing the net or chatting 27c
after an hour of fragging absolut top 36c

This is a mildly overclocked celleron 1 gig @110mhz (10x multiplier)
Should I bump the voltage to 1.8v to heat it up a little more?
Should I remove a fan or two?
Should I block off some of the case venting?
Or am I in a good range as it stands now?

Thanks guys
Frag ya later

Unless the noise from your fans is bothering you, you should be fine the way it is. You don't need to increase the Vcore just to heat it up. In fact, most people would lower the Vcore if they could to get their proc even cooler and require less juice. The only reason you should increase the Vcore, is if you decide to overclock more and your computer becomes unstable. If I were you, I'd be happy with those temps and leave it the way it is (unless the fans are bothering you ;))

thanks. I'm only happy when the system is at it's optimum point meanning that it is at the highest OC it can afford at lowest temp as possible (under 50C max of course for the celeron)

Wonder how high I can clock it up??
it seems I gained a linear 10% peformance for a 10% increase on the fsb with no adverse effects.
So far as the noise goes I cannot even detect the thing on the sound level meter, mind you it starts at 70db. Damn case is to perdy to put on the floor too, would be screwed if it were too loud.
lol

Just to let you know, that sig is way to long, so you might want to shorten it up before the mods do. read the forum guidelines to see how long it can be.

As for your question some people run their chips below 0 with a vapochill, so 25 is not bad in anyway. You don't need to up the vcore unless you want to clock it higher.
