Hello World!
I am building a custom case for a youtube/Starcraft dedicated machine. This machine is running a PIII and whatever AGP GPU above 64Mb i can get my hands on. Now this machine runs like a dream for what it was build to do i<ve never had a machine run as well for what it was conceived for i'm happy. However i know i cant speed up my clock speeds since it's a DELL(ewwwww) mobo and i had learnt the a really cold processor will run slow same for a really hot processor. So what would the ideal temp for a P3 be? And where might or how might i find out the ideal running temp of a CPU?
Thanks a bunch

You will need to gather the CPU info off of the top of it. It is usually identified with a Alpha-numeric designation. Once you have that info, google it.

For example, an Intel P4 2.66GHz processor has the designation SL6PE on its top.

I googled it and got the following link:

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL6PE

Do the same with yours and you will find out what the running temp should be.

Good luck.
