I just bought a used Prescott Pentium 4 P4 670 3.8 Ghz SL8PY 2M Cache 800 Mhz FSB Hyper Thread off e-bay.
Would anyone have any suggestions for testing this if it's working 100% ? I've got lots of cooling fans to prevent over heating. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
There is an Intel employee/expert on here, but I think I remember that cpu was the reason they stopped going higher on ghz.....they sort of gave up on trying to cool them...
You NEED the best cpu cooler you can find, plus as much case cooling, and maybe pack it with ice lol (last bits a joke...dont try it lol)
All the best Brett
I just put thin coat of Antec's Formula 7 heat sink compound on the heat sink mating pad, I've got the temp down to 65c stabilized...it was up to 67c and a rare 68c. I read that 67.7c was max for Prescotts, but the writing was for a 3.4
I'm considering a water cooler.
What do you think..and for anyone else reading this, your info will be appreciated!
