    Hi, I was wondering what the average cpu temp is on a 3.4 ghz 1mb cache pentium 4, or a web site I could look at with that information.
    Thanks

    Have a look over here. Yours might be at the bottom.

    uuh.... i doubt it's the one at the bottom. that says only up to 1.8Ghz.

    Led, i'm not sure about yours, but i have my P4 2.4C overclocked to 3.0, and my temp still hasn't gone much over like 42-43 during idle, and about 52 during gaming, like CS: Source and UT2004. but that could also be my fan too, since i'm not using stock. i think it should probably be around that temp. don't entirely take my word for it though, since mine is probably a different model P4 than yours, which might run either hotter or cooler. maybe someone else has the same one and could give you some insight.

    What your CPU temp will be depends on your room temperature, your internal case temperature and how good your cooling solution is (CPU Fan).

    40-55 deg C at normal load, 5 deg higher with heavy use (gaming, folding, etc).

    Further down......next one.

    Try this>> Chris Hare's Processor Electrical Specifications .

    That's a link just below again. :D

    My temps are much the same as yours ElementalDragon. I had to back mine off to just over 3.0ghz. Must have some dogdy ram.

    wait........ there's 2 different P4 2.4C's that run at a slightly different core voltage? so..... does that mean that maybe upping my voltage a hair might NOT affect the heat from other stuff too much?

    With stock cooling?

    113 deg to 120 deg idle
    140 deg to 158 deg full

    This was from a 3.4 Prescott core LGA 775 with the stock Intel cooling.

    Ya with stock cooling. My temps match up with Steevos reply, I believe that I am in the right ballpark. Thanks!:)

    I would seriously doubt that - probably different size build in the chip (90 nM versus 130 micron or whatever)

    well... what i meant by that is some people say that upping your core voltage even just a hair can sometimes greatly increase heat produced even by stuff AROUND the processor.

    Voltage times Current = Watts. Watts = Heat so yes your temp would rise elementaldragon.
