Ok so i have 2 setups right now, i recently took my p4 3.0 northwood outta my asus abit ic7 max3 board where it was running at a temperature of like 45 degrees. put it into an asus p4p800e deluxe where it ran at a stunning 30 degrees. now is this just cause the abit is a hot motherboard? or cause abit reads to high and asus reads too low? anyone have any similiar experience?

I have heard from many others that the IC7-Max3 is the hottest running P4 board on the planet. That is the reason i don't own it.

Talk about utter BS, the reason you dont own it is because your IS7 gives you all of the perf, at 1/2 the cost.
I have to agree with Wusy, I dont believe either of them.
The only true test of if a P4 is running too hot, is if it's throttling, and on either sensor, you still have a lot of room.

Time out, "O dancing clown"! We are talking about the temp of the MB, or in dummy terms the sys temp. They run hot! A lot of the 875 boards do. WTF don't you understand about this?

OK Bozo! You get it too! My IS7 runs 40C at 3.5 ghz. If I crank to 3.6 it runs 43C. Now these are the sys temp readings from EQ. If I go to 3.7ghz I am over 45C sys temp. Now, you want to tell me that's cool. You want to tell me that 65C under load is cool for a Northwood "C" processor? You don't? Then STFU!

Yup, who p--sed in your cornflakes. All I said was you werent stupid enough to waste the money on a different board, because the one you use is better. Sorry I take it back.
Wanna dance.

Relax WUSY. I'm just kidding. But yea, there is a 20C difference in my ABIT between CPU temps at idle and full load in Doom3 or something like it. This board does run much hotter than my previous MSI-NEO-FIS2R. About 5C. As for the STFU I think I've been possessed by the spirit of Andrew Dice Clay. HELP! :lol:

Actually endyen, the Max3 was going to be my first choice. I bought a Neo-FIS2R instead. "BIG MISTAKE" People were telling me the MAX3 ran hot. Surely not 20C hotter than an ASUS, but hot never-the-less. 45C would be about the right temp for that board. My IS7 reads 40C right now and it's chilly in this room.

The only reason I could see why the IC7 MAX3 would truly run hotter (not including poor interpretation of the sensor) is that the otes pwm cooler is deflecting the airflow from the cpu fan.
That would not be good for btx form factor. After all, if a small fan they have on the otes can cause that kind of problem for cpu airflow, what impact would the big fans they put on upper and high end graphics cards do to the airflow to a fanless cpu heatsink?
