I've just built a new machine for myself. its a p4 2.53Ghz/533 on a gigabyte GA-SINXP1394(GA-8SQ800 Ultra2) board, and 1gb of ddr400 ramin dual channel. I've got the stock heatsink and fan on it, and have clocked it up a bit to a fsb of 150 (i think that puts it at 2.85Ghz, or somewhere around there, the ram is running at 400mhz). At idle it sits at 33 degrees centigrade and at max load (Prime95) it runs at 58 degress centigrade, is that normal?? I thought I'd be able to clock it higher than that before it got to those temps. What is the max temp I should let the P4 get to?
Also, according to the sensors the heatsink fan is only running at 2k rpm, seems a bit low to me?? what do you boffins recon?
