ok i bought all my p4 stuff thinking that everything was gonna be nice and cool. anyways my stock 1.8a is running at 50c load (not o/c'ed at all. i have heard that the stock cooling is pretty sufficient to do some good overclocking. but if it is gonna be this hot from the getgo i might need to change hsf's.

here is another problem. in PC probe and sandra i am getting the 50c temps, but in mbm5 i am getting 25c at the same time. for the sensor in mbm5 i set it to "ASUS 4 (CPU Diode)"

i hope that i dont have to buy ANOTHER heatsink, but if i must then i must.
I have also heard that PC probe sucks, and that is why i checked it in sandra. in my bios it read like 45c (off load)
please help
