2.4c... how does this sound


p4 2.4c (1.55) volts (running at 3.0 with a 5:4 divider)
1024 megs Samsung PC3200 (1.65 volts)

Chieftec Matrix Case. 4 fans running
Kingwin 350 watt PSU (2 fans)

Room temperature = 26 degrees
Case temps = 34 degrees
Cpu temps = 43.50 degrees

I am using a Zalman 7000+Alcu CPU cooler at full speed.

It seems stable when running 3dMark2k3 or memtest or Sandra burn in Wizard. But on occasion i see the CPU temp go CRAZY and run up 55+ degrees.

At one point is this dangerous? Are my temps ok, or shouuld I pull it apart again (I have enuf thermal paste, double checked)

Or am I pretty much pushing the limits of my processor.

  1. Ok I got burned for this once before. So I will be careful. I don't see what mother board you are using. If it's an ABIT is7 or ic7. They show the cpu temp higher than other boards do. 55 is only a little high. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    These specs are here so I don't have to repeat them. P4 2.4c @ 3.0 ASUS P4P800 dx Geil pc4000 2.5,3,3,6 250FSB 1:1 Radeon 9500 non-pro 2 Maxtor 60gig 7200rpm 8mb cach in raid 0 SB Audigy 2
  2. I have my 2.4c running at 2.9ghz using ASUS's AI overclocking utility. It is about 27C idle and 43C loaded. 3.0ghz doesnt sound like you are pushing too far - heard of many people at 3.2c without problems.
