  1. Hi all Im new in the OC'n thing as most of Y'all probably figgerd out. Maybe im not searching for the rite thing but,,,,
    How hot is too hot for a P4?. i.e. 400mhz 2.4 celeron
    I have played a few games,,Jedie Knite,UT2002,Several hunting Games..With my MOBO came "PcAlert4" (MSI i845E-MAX). It tells me after an hour of Gaming 41c degrees Cpu, 34c degrees SYSTEM.
    at idle it gets down to 33c/CPU 32c/SYSTEM
    Cpu cooler: ThermalTake Spark7 478 @ 6500RPM
    2 in, 4out case fans,,including twin PSU fans.
    I know that OC'n brings more heat,,so in a nut shell i need a limet,,ya know??

    Thanks All.

    Stay under 75C and you'll be fine.
