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
1028 MB Kingston memory
2 40 Gig Western DIgital HDs
Asus CDRW, zip and a few other things.
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?
