    The old Pentium 4's run hot and were slow. Considering they ran pretty hot at idle it doesn't surprise me that it's running at 65 degrees under 100 percent load.
  2. SO DOES THST MEAN I NEAD NOT TO WORRY ABOUT BUYING AN AFTERMARKET HEAT SINK
  3. yes its normal.
  4. no you don't have to worry. Is it running at 100% all the time?
  5. NO.IT RUNS 100% DURING CPU INTENSIVE APPLICATIONS USE OR WHEN TESTED WITH PRIME 95.THANKS GUYS

    Stop typing in capitals.

    Its fine, prescotts were hot CPUs, they had trouble cooling them when they came out.

    Anyway 65C is a good full load temp.
