I bought a 3.0ghz Prescott Pentium 4 HT 800mhz FSB SL7E4. Anyway, my old 2.4/800 used to run at like 45-50C..this one is idling at around 62C with fans fully cranked...when i idle the fans down(which i usually was able to do on the other one and it wouldnt fluxuate the idle temps), it goes up around 70C. Is this normal for this processor? If not, can anyone reccomend a good SILENT...as in NO NOISE...not quiet SILENT :thumbsup: Socket 478 Cooler.

PS. Im using the cooler that came stock with the 2.4/800 because I was told on this forum, its the same as the stock one with 3.0/800.

When you installed the CPU did clean the old thermal compound off of the heat sink and reapply fresh thermal compound when you installed the new CPU?

Plenty being the key word. There can be too much of a good thing. You only need an amount approx. the size of a grain of rice.

I use alcohol and cotton balls (since I have them around), what one uses varies by person, as you would see by Googling "remove thermal paste.".

I use a credit card to take off the majority of the compound, and rubbing alcohol works well to remove the rest.

When you reapply the compound place a small amount right in the center of the heat spreader of the CPU, this amount is about the size of a grain of rice. Spread it with your finger tip till is covers the heat spreader.
