How can I cook it?

Hey guys

I just built a new system and I am trying to get the CPU to get hot. Running Seti@home while defragging is only heating it up to 52c. The case is staying just above room temp. I have been probing the case and heat sink and the temp is accurate. Is there any software out there to further tax the system or did I find the pre-overclock sweet spot?

Antec 1080 AMG with Antec 430 true power, 2 front fans, 1 side, 2 main rear, slot fan cooling video card, stock heat sink plus fan, and ofcourse stock videocard and power supply fans
Intel 3.06 P4
ATI 9700
Asus P4PE
1028 MB Kingston memory
2 40 Gig Western DIgital HDs
Asus CDRW, zip and a few other things.

i use toast. why are you using defrag to stress test a cpu?

my computer is so fast, it completes an endless loop in less than 4 seconds!

what about the drempels screensaver? it's a 3D generating color-thing that's wobbly to freak with and... it loads your CPU at 100%

you can find it at

btw look for the 1.4 version, others can be a bit buggy

Toast will not run on his TOast is only for AMD K7 Core based CPU's.....

as for 52Celcious being as high as u can go...thats than probably a high as u can

Seti@Home is good for heating up the i imagine thats as hot as it will go...

I got it up to 53c while running the Sandra Burn plus Seti@home together. I was very impressed with the ability of the 3.06 P4 s ability to run both simultaneously as if it was only running one. By the way while running Sandra burn alone it only broke 48c. Seti@home had it hitting 52c and both at the same time got it up to 53. I ran these for 6 hours straight without it breaking a sweat. Considering the the chip can take up to 69c I figure that I am in the sweet zone. Anyone else have heat results from their 3.06?

ive run toast on a celeron. and a k6.

my computer is so fast, it completes an endless loop in less than 4 seconds!

Most likely designed/optimized for the K7 in terms of pipeline filling, having 9 IPC and all.
