    Normal Temperatures???

    Hey, i was just wondering what are normal cpu and case temperatures for Pentium 4s???? My cpu temp is at 76 deg CELCIUS on startup and the case is at 40 deg CELCIUS on starup. Is this normal and do i have overheating issues??

    Thanks

    if its on true cold startup, your sensors are out, if it reaches that in a few mins you have major cooling issues.

    cleaned the dust bunnies out in the past year ?

    well its running very hot, answer my question about cleaning the dust bunnies out, if the CPU heatsink is full of fluff, you will see high case and CPU temps, everything will get hot as it cant shift the heat.

    case side off and have a look. may need to remove the 4 screws that hold the CPU fan on to clean between them as thats where the fluff normally winds up.

    with half decent airflow case temps shouldnt get over 30.

    my motherboards 30, and my CPu is 35

    i have good ventilation in my case.

    Well the thing is that i cleaned it out about 3 weeks ago!!! but i think i may have gone overboard with the cleaning...i think i cleaned off the thermal tape on the bottom of the heatsink...could this be causing the heat??? I have also had some crashing issues while playing games where a blank blue screen flashes and then the pc restarts...could this be the reason for this??

    you cleaned the paste off the heatsink. well you just answerd your own question there. without the paste your lucky its still running if you have been gaming.

    better get ur ass out the door into the cold and go track down some paste b4 u blow the system

    pc world, maplins or your local pooter repair shop should be able to help out for under a fiver.

    Yikes!!! I think perhaps taking it to bits to clean the dust out is going a bit too far Next you'll be pulling the CPU and polishing the pins

    As Gonzo says... If you cleaned out ALL the thermal paste between the heatsink and CPU you need to replace it QUICK!

    If you meant you just cleaned off any excess at the bottom of the heatsink, just make sure you havn't spread it around over any pins. I'm sure I've read somehwere that certain CPU compounds are slightly conductive which could cause a heat problem.

    If you removed the heatsink then it's generally a good idea to clean off all the thermal paste from both the heatsink and CPU and reapply some more, it's not very effective otherwise.

    okay well i got som of that paste and i applied it...its pretty handy because it comes in a syringe tube thingo and it ven comes with an applicator thats like a piece of cardboard....so yeh pretty handy. I put on a bit more than the size of a pea and i read somewhere that when putting it on you should put the least amount on that gets full coverage..is this right?? Anyways ive put it on now...so basically my question is can i startup my pc anytime now?? or do i have to wait a while for it dry or something?? Isnt it suppose to stay like a greasy compound sorta, so then i could startup anytme yeh??

    There was no instructions of drying time so i assume i can startup my pc up straight away but i wanna get confirmation of that first from you guys.

    btw when i took off my heatsink today i found that there was a pad/tape still on it that still had a bit of grease on it...so i suppose by me not taking that off i wasnt really running the heatsink and the cpu die with direct contact so that must of been why my pc was running games for like a while then turning off...would i be right in saying that??

    Anyways thanks for all your help guys!! I really appreciate it

    okay yeh i dunno about going to town...hehe but when i cleaned the first time i am pretty sure there was greasy stuff on there so i cleaned it off and then i saw shiny silver tape the second time which was today...so i figured that the greasy stuf was part of the pad but yeh no one else has touched the pc but me and that was the first time i had ever done anything like that so i assume that the greasy stuff was part of the tape pad thingo...but yeh as i said thank you very much for your help!!

    well unfortunately i just turned my pc on and on startup cpu temp is 74 Celcius!! Im using Motherboard monitor 5 as my software and i tried using other programs but same deal!!! What is going on?? I am using speedfan now as a program and it says temp 1: 32C (blue downwards arrow next to it)
    temp 2: 25C (Blue downwards arrow)
    temp 3: 74C (Red Yellow Flame next to it)
    HD0: 31C (green tick next to it)

    Well i just checked BIOS, CMOS thingo and i checked the PC Health Status in there and it says: - Current System Temp 33C
    - Current CPU Temp 30C

    And Alarm set for 70C

    The alarm hasnt gone off at all!!! The only alarm that went off was once i used Motherboard monitor...sooo i think temp 1 in my post above isnt cpu temp!!! BUT motherboard monitor says clearly CPU Temp: 75C!! I also put my hand next to the cpu fan and it feels quite cool!!! so yeh!!

    Im confused!!

    MBM5 isnt the smartest kid on the block... What MOBO are you using ?

    Try getting a copy of Everest latest, it may have better access to youre sensors and report more correctly, but if the BIOS says low then Id trust that rather than MBM5.

    Good Luck
