Ive already asked to a degree, but I have a further question.
Posted on 2006-05-13
Im about to purchase a new fan - Fatal1ty 120mm CPU fan.
1.) I understand this is the best for Socket 478
2.) My processor is a P4 3.0mhz 1GB L2 Cache Hyper-Threading
3.) I have tried two fans - the stock P4 and a CoolMaster, and neither of them see to bring the temp below 55 C ..
4.) On boot up I run at about 52-60 C (from BIOS)
5.) Normal operating conditions run at 55-68 C -- I am told this is too high
So my basic question is .. is there anything else that could be causing the temp to be so high? OR does this really just require a more powerful fan?
I have a great exhaust system setup too, so the are is in and out (exhaust fan).
If anyone could guide some light before I buy the new fan, I would apprechiate it.
