The other day I was torture testing my system with Prime95. Since my computer is in my room, I like it as quite as possible, hence why I run the Spark 7 on auto. Well that night I left Prime95 running, but I used speedfan to slow down the cpu fan, from about 4500 RPM to about 3500 RPM (similar to the stock intel fan speed) and went to bed.

Well I woke up the next morning to find this... :eek:

HOT HOT HOT!!!

Wow!! So I closed speedfan and the CPU Fan speed went back up to 4500-5000 RPM, and I left it to sit for a bit, still no change. So I pulled the cover on the case, felt the heatsink and it didn't seem that warm. Anyways, I stopped Prime (ran for about 23 Hours) and turned the system off to let it cool.

Since then everything has been fine, I haven't changed anything. So I'm not to sure what happened. Whatever, still works :)

Think I burned it in good though. ;)

Currently as I type this, CPU is at 32 C, the motherboard is at 32 C and the CPU FAN is at 2800 RPM.

Those temps are impossible with pentium 4. If you go to intels site they say it cant go over 70C or else it starts running 50% duty cycles to cool off. (You could pratically run it with out a heatsink when this happens)

lol, if you ran it without a heatsink in the first place, this would be a cause to activate the thermal throttling ;)

Probably a misnomer on the temp probe software / bios / hardware / something...

I've began noticing that my P4 is always reading 52c and higher under nearly any circumstance... Even at 1.8ghz and 1.1v on an IHS-less P4 D0 and an MCX4000+80mm Y.S. Tech fan it reads 51c; I don't think that's even possible.

Take the thermal readings with a grain of salt :)

My temps read between 34-37 degrees, but as soon as I put the case cover back on it jumps up at least 8 degrees.Right now it's reading 22, maybe cause I got the front door open and breeze goes right to the case....OH yeah that and it's snowing like a ******* outside :D.

or you could do that :)
Actually, I leave the covers off on my rig a lot of the time too since im always doing something in there anyway. Whatever works I guess.
