    Default Cooling Question

    I have a P4 3.0 Ghz (Prescott 478pin) On a MSI MS-6540 Mainboard, My temps are running at CPU-52C SysTemp-38C Idle, and CPU-64C SysTemp-38C. I have only 1 Exhaust fan out the back, and the cpu fan Blowing On The CPU(with a duct runnin from the side of my case directly on the fan), Now my questions is that should the CPU fan be blowing On the cpu or Out. Logic says blowing on the fan to balance intake and exhuast. I was just wondering should I change that around having the cpu fan blowing out and the other fan blowing in?

    Please help me(If I need it)

    Also To read temps have a program that came on the cd with all the drivers its called PC Alert4, But I dled another program and its giving me dif CPU temps, Possible Problem?

    The fan should be blowing toward the processor. There were only a couple of heatsink designes that were made to work the other way and those were several years ago (Alpha comes readily to mind).

    It is higher than I would like, but they're not critical at all.

    For a Prescott those temps are fine though they could be a little better (75C brings on CPU throttling anyway).
