    Default Need cooling tips for msi845pe max temp` to high

    I have an msi 845pe max motherboard with p4 2.0ghz (overcloced to 2.5ghz)
    two dimm 256mb each pc2700
    two harddisks and pci ethernet card

    I have two PSU one ATX 400w and another one old 230w

    I have three fans that push air inside my cpu case and one who push air out's the cpu (I just installed them I drilled two holes in the case side and it decrease my temp` in something like 10 degrees).

    But my temp still are:

    cpu: 47c (when playing can get to 60c also without overclocking)

    system: 31c-36c

    so if someone have any ideas how to cool my case or why it's so hot...

    The temp` are the same (2c-3c difference) without the overclocking so that it's not the problem.

    What temps do you get when you do the same things but with the side of the case taken off? Is the case in a well ventilated area?

    Since I put the two fan's in the case side it's works like the case side was off like I said it's decreased something like 10 degrees.
    My computer place near the window but on the upper floor and it's really hot there but that what I have, so if u got some tips for cooling I'll be glad.

    I really don't think that you have anything to worry about with those temps anyway as that CPU will throttle itself down when it reaches about 75C and will shut itself down if throttling doesn't work but you could invest in a good copper HSF to shave temps down more if you want to.

    There are quite a few out there with the Thermaltake Volcano 7+, Thermaltake Spark 7+, Zalman CNPS 7000A-Cu, CoolerMaster Jet4, Coolermaster AERO4 and Thermalright SLK948U (fan required) being just some to choose from (see what's available to you and suits your budget. Google for some reviews on them.).

    you dont under any circumstances want the cpu to throttle down for one main reason... you will lose performance.

    what temperatures do you get if you use a program like sis sandra? (use the burnin option). its free to download if you dont have it.

    a northwood should only reach 55 max on full load - according to all (97%) of reviews. i am fighting with my 3.4 northwood at the moment to get it down to those temps. (i get 64c at full load).

    I used the burn-in in sandra and the cpu temp` was 60c-63c I run it for 40 times cpu used 100% (when I'm playing it's only get to max of 60c) I try servel programs like prime95 and CPU Stability Test 6 and the result were the same for the temp` and the system didn't crashed once. I repeat in ordinary when not playing or runnig something havy my cpu temp` it's 47c-50c. So I think I'm fine. But like wayout44 said I need more cooling for more overcloking.
