Just got a P5WD2 with a 3.2 ghz pentium-d 840 and was wondering what
others were getting temperature wise. At idle with normal room temps I
get about 46 c, under full load I'm going way up to about 68/70 c. This
seems like a huge swing. This is my first dual core model so I'm not
sure if this is normal. Anyone running dual cores and what temps are you
getting?

The Intel processors have a throttling feature, and that is
the reason the processor is not going higher in temperature than
70C. When throttling, not every clock cycle is used for computing.
which helps to cool the processor down. It means you need better
cooling for the processor - either the case cooling is not sufficient
(air is too hot around the CPU heatsink/fan), or the CPU cooler needs
to be better (zalman 7700 or thermalright xp-120 plus lga775rm adapter
kit plus a fan).

You could try using two exhaust fans on the back of the case - that
is what it looks like they are doing in the picture at the top of
this page:

http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=238...

or you could consider running a duct from the side of your computer
case, down to the top of the Intel fan. That would allow ambient room
air to be used for cooling.

Using equipment like this, requires special care in designing the
cooling solution. While the boxed Intel cooler will likely just
barely bring the CPU temp below the throttle level, you need a
cooling solution that can do much better than that. And just
dumping all the heat into the case, means you'll be torturing
your disk drives (which are the most heat/humidity sensitive
components in the case). If you use a large computer case,
for example, that will give you room to work, give you a place
to put in some exhaust fans, and allow more room for vent space
on the case (something I noticed was sadly lacking on one
of my computer cases).

This box, for example, has lots of room for fans. Have a look
at the product release sheet and the installation guide. There
is an option to have a fan in front of a group of drives, which
is exactly what you want, to give the drives the best cooling,
while moving a great volume of air through the case.

http://www.coolermaster.com/index.php?LT=english&Langua...

If using a box like this, you'll also want a rheobus with enough
channels to control all the fans. Then you can adjust the fan
speeds for best cooling versus noise tradeoff. You could also
solve the problem with a handful of Fanmate II fan speed controllers
from Zalman, but a drive bay mounted rheobus with four knobs on
the front would be more convenient.

When doing the fans, it is best to balance the inlet CFMs with
the exhaust CFMs. Having some inlet fans down low in the front
of the computer, may help keep dust from settling inside the case.

It's an Intel...and yes those temps are normal....Intel is *MUCH* hotter
than AMD.

Before you start changing fans and cases etc do a search on the net as
several sites have already reviewed the dual core. The reviews will tell you
the idling and full throttle temps.

U got AMD ?
If U do , remind everybody here how AMD was *MUCH MORE* hotter than Intel.
But U don't WANT to remember that , do U ? :o )

Another idiot knee jerk response. In the *years* since the introduction of
the K6, AMD runs cooler than Intel.

If you are going to post, post something relevant...we are not interested in
History here.

Yes, I own three AMDs. Used to own Intel. In fact, would only buy Intel,
until they stopped being innovative.

FWIW, I could throw your comments right back in your face...The Prescott
killed the P4 because of heat.

Welcome to the killfile.

Agree with your recommendation to research, but the OP's temps are way out
of line, even for a dual core. His temps at idle are 65 degrees Celsius,
and states that it has gone into the 80s at times. This is outside the
thermal envelope even for a Dual Core.

Which poster are you talking about? I'm not at 65 C idling, is there
some other thread you're talking about?

I hear that. I just built a new computer and went for a 2.8 GHz
Northwood core Pentium 4. I wanted no part of the heat generating
Prescotts.

I am running a 3.2 Prescott with a aero cool ht-101 with two fans on it ,2
x 90 case fans at rear,1 x 90 side ,1 x 120 front and there is 4 fans on
the 550 watt power supply.plus the ati x800 card has artic cooler on it
..this runs at 40 to 42 at idle with case in a cupboard type self at idle and
has gone up to 62 after about playing nfs under ground for about 2 hours on
a warm day.if you want less noise you would have to go water cooled ,myself
would hate to have a leak in that setup.sure there are lots of people say it
is great but I would be the one it goes wrong on.as far Intel vs. amd they
each have there pluses and have to take steps to work with what you have.
