I have simple question. What is the normal temperature of Pentium 4 Prescot 3.0 GHz. I have just bought a new one and the temperature seems to be quite high - 58°C - 66°C !!!
Is it normal??? What is the maximum temp for these CPUs???
Thanks for answers

That is normal. a little warm tho. I believe it is safe up to 80°.
I have a 3200 Prescott, and runs from 53° to 65°

Your CPU changes clock speed under load? Thats worrying.

I think it is GigaByte's C.I.A. (CPU Intelligent Accelerator) which is enabled.
It is similar to Asus's P.A.T. technology.

I read that the GiGabyte boards increased the fsb under load to give a better bench mark score for a selling point .

I just re installed a 3.0 Prescot ,,, oc'd to 3.2 . Temp under load was 57 C . Is that ok ? Someone said above " safe to 80 " Thats 80c right ?
