thank all again , and sory of my poor english.

i am still think my computer is very special @@

my computer is not DIY by my self , i buy it in computer store. when i
open it first time . it's auto power down after 5 min because temp to hot.(with The stock Intel heatsink)
so... i ask the seller , he's anser is : stock Intel heatsink of my cpu is not work fine,
and i should buy a better one. i buy a better one and i see seller had use the thermal paste .... everythink is ok!
finaly we open the computer again , yes! it's will not auto power down . but temp is realy too hot.
i ask seller if the temp is too hot ? he say 53~58 degree is normal and it can run well.
but i don't believe him so i ask here.

the vcore is MB auto detect and use default value.

Did you use thermal paste?

My first question is did you install the CPU cooler right? If the heatsink is not seated flat on the CPU, there will not be proper cooling. Also, did you put thermal paste between the bottom of the heatsink and the CPU? I'm guessing those temps are Celsius, which is very hot for a P4. Many times temperature monitoring systems are inaccurate. Download Motherboard Monitor and check the temps through that program. Report back the temps.

the cPU can get hotter with the case open, try closing it

Check vCore and make sure you properly mounted your HSF.

Are you using the stock heat sink that came with your 2.4GHz Pentium 4?

I have a p4 2.4c @3.0, fsb at 1000 and with a stock HSF it is at 33 deg c as I am writing this. When I encode video, it will run at 45~50 max

Did you ADD thermal paste to the stock Intel Heatsink? You either use the Heatsink as it came with the black metallic film on it, or you clean all that off totally and use a Good Silver paste. Don't use both at once! I have tried either way and never had heat issues. Full load is in the mid 40's max. My one system is about 41 max. And yes whoever said that an open case can raise cpu temps is right. With proper airflow you can be much cooler with the case closed, and opening it can throw off air flow totally.

The stock Intel heatsink isn't quiet, but it does an amazing job doesn't it.
