I hope this is a safe temperature to run my o/c comp at..

Postby jmstacey » Sun Jun 30, 2002 1:48 pm

I overclocked my p4 1.6A Ghz processor to 2GHz with the oem heatsink and fan. In order to get it stable, I had to bumb the vcore voltage to 1.65v (When it wasn't o/c it was at 1.6 for some reason :? )
I've run the sisoftsandra burn in program now and its stable.
When my cpu is maxed out for a long period of time, the temp rises to a steady 58C(100% in use)
I was just wondering if this is a safe temperature for my o/c computer.
Thanks!!

I'd like to see it below 50*C myself. P4's don't run hot natively like AMD CPU's do, so that is a lot higher than I'd like it to be.

I was able to bring the core voltage down a little, only a 5 degree difference(Celcius). The hot weather here probably isn't helping either. Got any suggestions then that are under $40??

I was tinkering with some settings on the mobo, and was able to run my system at an even lower vcore voltage and still be stable. (1.53v)
My temp is now a steady 54-55*C. If only I cound get the oem fan to run as fast as it can all the time and not move with the temp :? (any ideas on that :?: )

:idea: I'll see in abit about buying a new hsf, but since it gets cold here in a few months I had a weird idea to pump the cold outside air in(into the case). My comps right next to the window, so I wouldm't have to use much tube also. Think that would help/work?

In theory pumping cold air from outside would work, however just don't forget to take it out once the heat starts coming back. And also make sure that you have dust filters at each end of the hose. It will hinder airflow a bit, but better than having all sorts of dust going to your pc.

If you had the inclination you could also do like a friend of mine has done. He constructed his own watercooler. He used an old automatic Transmission radiator and a small waterpump.
ABIT NF7-S | Athlon 2500XP @ 12x200 | Corsair HydroCool200 | 3DMark2K1 V330 = 15722 ~ 3DMark03 V340 = 4988
