Thread: Temp bouncing with speedisk???

    Being new to P4's, this may be normal, but I doubt it....

    Running a P4-1.8A on a BD7-RAID with a Thermaltake Volcano7+ with WinXP-Pro. When I try to run Nortons Systemworks Pro 2002 Speedisk, I find the temps jump up and down from the normal 42-45 degrees, to 55-65 degrees C. They seem to go up as fast as down and only for a few seconds do they appear to remain high, but stay up long enough to shut the machine down if I don't have the thermal protection in the bios set at 70 degrees.

    I put a layer of Arctic Silver II on when I installed it, and for everything else, the machine never exceeds 50 degrees, well all except Prime.... gets to about 54-55 degrees, with an idel of about 39-40 degrees. Right now, system is at 27 degrees and cpu at 42 degrees.

    Any ideas???

    defraging uses a fair bit of system recources but should be mainly to the hd, when you used the artic silver did you give it a genorus blob or a neat fine layer?
    Because you are only ment to put a little bit neatly otherwise it can/will get air bubbles, not transferheat efficiantly etc.
    also you could try updating your bios, your temp readouts might be faulty.

    and i would also strongly recomend: DO NOT EVER USE ANY THING OF NORTONS (exept ghost).

    Unfortanatly I have to use Norton av at work, but at least i get free copies of it and i have enought brains to realise my computer is better of with out it.
    I only run av software if i'm somewhere where i could get a virus, and then i am still hesatant to put nortons on, i'll ask around first.

    Norman Virus Control v5.3 has far superior heuristics to NAV - its "sandboxing" technology runs rings around anything else ;)
    What came first - Insanity or Society?
