I got my Prescott running at about 3ghz and the average temp is around 46-49 celsius is that a good temp for my CPU. Iv heard that Prescotts are literally bloody hot piece of hardware.

Thanks guys

Load temp is all that count.

49c is like watercooling for the Prescotts, of course that is good. That is if this is your load temp.

My monitoring software and BIOS are both telling me that I am running 48-49 C. I dont beleive it though. It can't be right. I have a 3.0E that runs 46C not OC'd and 48C OC'd to 3449.6. That cant be correct can it?

INKIBUS, what brand and model is your MOBO?

Those temps are perfectly fine Maybe 1 0r 2 degrees cooler than they usually run consider yourself lucky Or you just got good case flow
Dont Worry Be Happy

The fact that they were too good was what had me worried. From all that I have seen on this site, these temps just seemed to good to be true. BTW I just pushed it to 3592.6 (CPUZ) and still no temp increase. Maybe your right. I am a bit on the negative side when it comes to me getting lucky about anything.

My thinking too. Even at cool load, a HSF to do that on a Prescott is good.

I told you, the monitor reads the wrong sensor. I have MBM5 loaded on my other drive and figured out which sensor you're supposed to use. Unfortunately you have to ENCOURAGE me to actually dig that drive out of storage and MOUNT it in my system so I can REMEMBER which sensor it was.

I remember what you told me. I don't doubt you on what you said. The reason that I brought it up again is because I came up with similar results with another monitoring program. The actual temps are different, but the difference between the temps at idle or under load are about the same. That bothers me as much as the temp itself.

OK, my last drive is unavailable at the moment, so I loaded the latest version of MBM5 on my system and found sensor ITE8712F-2 Diode to correspond most closely to the CPU temp.

The case temp was way off, I just set it to LM94-9 Remote to stop the alarm, but I don't think that's the right one. So I figured out which sensor to use for the CPU, you can figure out which one to use for the chipset temp.

Yep, thats about right! Now I can stop be so concerned about my low and stable CPU temps. Its running in the low 50's at idle and mid 50's to high 50's under stress. I guess I can be happy that im finally baking it properly. Ive been playing around with those other sensors, and have some of them figured out. What temp range should the chipset be running at. If you can tell me that, I will find the correct setting.

Yeah the 46-49 celsiusis is at idle temp. I got a MSI Neo2-P motherboard and i installed its core center program to monitor the temp. I went and tested it while playing World of Warcraft...It was around 56-59 celsiuis. I know this is kinda like Dejavu...But is that good or normal temp?

For most chips, that would be horrible, but for the prescott, it's a bit on the low side. You should be fine.

I would suggest running prime95 and looking at the temp after 15min.

Because I'm using water cooling and lost the draft from the CPU fan, my chipset used to overheat. I added a 50mm fan to it, wired for 7v to reduce noise (I can't hear it over the drives now). If I really felt like taking the time, I could unhook the fan and see which sensor rizes appropriately. But since it runs cool enough (I touched it to make certain of that), I don't really have enough concern to take the time.
