The Soyo Hardware monitor program that came with my Motherboard reads my CPU temperature to be 75C. I can do a quick shutdown and get into my BIOS and read a temp of 45C. I experience NO stability problems. I am just kinda curious about this. Any thoughts?

P4 3.0GHZ 800FSB
The proscesor was clocked at 2.99GHZ using windows, I just bumped the FSB by a couple to get over the 3GHZ mark (Mental symbolic thing)

Soyo Dragon 2 Platinum (Complain as you might about soyo, but can you run 12 HD's without any expansion cards?)

1GB PC3200 Black Diamond (Is that a real manufactuerer? or just a name?)

Stock Pentium Heatsink (Going to put on my ThermalTake Volcano 7+, but lost the clips [was on AMD] any ideas for where to get them?)

Crappy 350W PSU ( , is that PSU bad? My case is clear and UV reactive, wanna keep up the gig)

ATI Radeon 9500 Pro (Cant overclock the darn thing without some modification <shrugs>)

Most of the time poeple get confused with the socket sensor with the diode sensor which would read higher than the socket sensor. However in your case, that software is a POS and should use MBM5.
