Ok ive just unlocked my XP2100 and set the multiplier to 11 and fsb to 166 to get 1826 mgz. My idle temps are now 50C and under 100% load for several hours of video encoding I hit around 58C. Are these temps acceptable or is time to upgrade that cooler (possibley to water cooling)?
From what I have seen those temperatures are pretty well within the tolerance level. Maybe the idling is a bit high but nothing to worry about. My p4 idles at around 40c & under full load get to about 51c.
Its the palamino core and so far its running stable. Just ordered the following water cooling system -
1x Danger Den Maze3 Lucite Top 1/2 inch Fittings & Mounting Kit
1x Danger Den Z Chipset Lucite Top 1/2 inch Fittings & Mounting Kit
1x Black Ice Extreme Radiator1x 120mm YS-Tec Fan
1x Eheim 1250 Water Pump
1x Danger Den Reservoir
2m Clear 1/2 inch Hose
4x Nylon Hose Clamps
1x Water Wetter
+ ive ordered a nice new aluminium case. when all this is up and running and I crank those volts up I should get up some serious speed!! (HOPEFULLY!!!)
