Temp for P4 641

I'm trying to find out the highest healthy temperature for a p4 3.2.

sSpec Number: SL94X
CPU Speed: 3.20 GHz
PCG: 06
Bus Speed: 800 MHz
Bus/Core Ratio: 16
L2 Cache Size: 2 MB
L2 Cache Speed: 3.2 GHz
Package Type: LGA775
Manufacturing Technology: 65 nm
Core Stepping: D0
CPUID String: 0F65h
Thermal Design Power: 65W
Thermal Specification: 64.4°C
Core Voltage: 1.200V-1.325V


Now, I really doubt 64.4 would be the highest healty temp, however it could be. If its not, how can I find it?
I've been searching on intel web site without much success.

Thanks

Well, healthy or not, you'll be lucky to keep it under 60°C with a stock/normal cooler and under 50°C with a decent air cooling solution (these being full load, non-OC temps.).

Enough FUD m25....FFS!!!! We all know how much you live to put-down anything Netburst....but get the facts straight...... That's a 65nm Cedar-Mill, and should stay at or under low 50's with the stock HS/F. give it a rest. My PD 915 @ 3.4 doesn't hit 50C @ load, with stock Intel HS/F, and his is a single-core variation of mine. You do the math! :x :x

I was just talking about general temperatures and those are normal temps for a P4, because most people check software that use the motherboard sensor, which reads 7-10° less than the CPU one that core temp or RMClock use. I didn't mean to be offensive with that, I just know that 65nm P4s are more or less like 90nm X2 A64s when it comes to temperatures.

Those temps seem slightly high. See if the heatsink is attatched properly or if there is any thermal paste on the chip.

Anyhow, I just wanted to know what temp is doing perm damage. I'm having the sonic tower right now and I dunno if I'll need a fan. So far I have a northwood 2.6 (512kb) and I dont need of any.

Thats the main reason of this post.

533Mhz FSB or 800Mhz FSB?

Temperatures DO, over the course of years, break down certain components in the silicon, high voltages will burn wear out the caps on the motherboard, etc., but it's not a big deal. Not sure if I've ever heard of someone who hasn't massively OCed their processor and had one burn out due to normal use. It just doesn't happen.

My fault, its 800mhz.

So far, during hot summer on load, it never gets over 55c no fan.
Of course I do have fans in my case for this specific purpose, but I might need to put a 120mm on that sonic tower tho.

I'll see myself... as long I know whats dangerous and whats safe.

I believe 65c and lower is ok.

8O Are you kidding?!!! I'd only put that for attemting 4.0-4.5GHz with that chip but your temps are just fine.

get a good themalright cooler

at 4ghz it run 60-65c and 70c max in very hot rom 90 f+

u need a good cooler - do not get a crapy zalman!
April 26, 2007 3:54:49 PM

Well, for the 120mm fan has few good things.
Usually more quiet.
Blow more air for same RPM.

Now, why that? Why not if the heatsink support it? :) 

And I'm pretty sure its going to be really good. It has (long time ago) pretty much the same cooling efficiency than the Tunic Tower. Mine, stock, doesn't come with the fan.

I had a chance to try to get it to run, but I think I got 1 of my 2 HD (stripping) dead. From the BIOS it was around 41-45.

much hate :p 

i actually think there are some great Zalman coolers out there.

I use the Zalman 120mm all copper cooler on my CPU. and also used it when i had a P4 preshott. on my AMD and the old P4 it provided superior coolign than stock units.

right now on my x2 4600. The stock cooler kept it idle around 44c and load around 60c. but was very audible.

the Zalman i have, with the fan on the lowest speed, is inaudible. idles around 40c and has never gone above 52c on fulll load. to say it's a crap cooler that doesnt work is false

You are correct, there are some great Zalman coolers. It's just a shame that they're really overpriced.

Since I have this thread going on... I updated my first post with exact cpu config.

I had another version, I do now have a less power hungry version.
Anyhow, I've had myself the pleasure to search for a good/accurate temp monitor software.

Ok, TAT and Coretemp seems to be doing the job, however doesn't work with my current board/cpu.

Any suggestion?
Mobo is a real cheap things for cheap upgrade for poor ppl :p

I'm using fanspeed (or speedfan) and its actually pretty good.
My heatsink wasn't well sat on the cpu last week and it went around 53 under load. I had some home modif to have it to be sit better and it has a good effect : 42 max on load.

I can say its pretty good this way, good thing I wont need a noisy fan.

Its big but I'm pretty satisfied with the sonic tower.

:lol:  oh a p4 huh, as long as you stay under 5000c you should be ok

Sounds good. :wink:

I run at 32c idle and 45c load with my prescott 3.0 @ 3.5.

Yeah...people love to bash P4's WRT their high temps.(I own 3 P4's and a P-D...and i do it myself...but jokingly) :wink: . For the most part, a decent HS/F and some good case-flow will keep temps to a reasonable level. :)
