*Gigabyte GA-8KNXP (Intel 875P Chipset)
*Intel P4 Prescott @ 3GHZ
*There is good air circulation
*Thermaltake copper HS with 6000RPM fan on CPU
This machine is running @ 54C at idle! Is there a known problem with this board or the prescotte running that hot? I know the prescotts are supposed to run a little hotter and are designed to do so, but 54C is insane. The HS is definitely contacting the processor and I have thermal paste on it too. The case has excellent air flow so I don't understand what is going on.
Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Any know conflicts with this mother board? Please help! Thank you.
