I'm after some idea of what to expect in terms of CPU temp for a hyperthreaded Pent4 - 3.06 GHz CPU. I'm running it with both CPU-halves pinned at 100 % usage for several tens of minutes, and would like to get some idea of what CPU temp others get under these circumstances.
I've been working on the cooling and noise of my system, and want to know if I'm getting there or not. In an ambient temp of 32 C, I get Motherboard temps of 31-32 C, CPU at 39 C at idle, rising to 48 under 100 % of one CPU, and 55 with both going.
My major issue is that it is too loud, so I'm looking at insulating the case and putting it in a cabinet, but I want to make sure it's going to run like this reliably. As it's my TV, DVD, Stereo, CD Player, Radio, VCR and Computer, it's a pain when it goes down!
