    Intel 640 3.2Ghz on a Gigabyte 81915 duo pro mobo

    usually idles between 40 and 44, but while I was ripping a dvd it was sitting around 60, and went up to 62.

    Using the stock HSF with the paste already on it. Do these processors normally run this hot, or do I need to change out my HSF?

    Case is a Coolermaster :mamoru: with a 120mm fan

    you don't really need to get worried with a P4 until they get around 70~

    One of the under-advirtised features of the newer P4 chips is that they act as mini-space heaters. At well over 100 watts of power being drawn, they tend to run a bit warm. Its ok though -- just leave all your windows open and let your computer heat up not only your room, but it may even warm your back yard up a bit!

    The P4's will de-clock themselves if the temp gets too hot, if I remember correctly.

    Heh. My Athlon XP 3000+ IDLES at 62C. I kid you not. Of course, the temperature never climbs more than 3C above that.

    i've got an older p4 2.8, and when i had that running 24x7 in my room (i've got a small room) there was a noticable increase of several degrees when i walked into my room, even with full house AC running

    I used to have a 1.8XP AMD in my old 10x10 room which was on constantly. The computer caused the room to heat up a lot. You would walk into the room and just be blasted with warm air yet the rest of the house was 74.

    You need a better heatsink/fan or more case cooling. My XP 2800+ thats overclocked to 3200+ speeds idles at about 43C, and goes up to 46C under full load. XP's can take a lot of heat, up to around 90C, but the less heat the better.

    I'm pretty sure the critical temp for an XP is 65C - 70C.
