    Check my sig, but I wonder if 40 to 42 degrees Celcius is a bit hot??

    Could I have done something wrong, or is this normal. (used Arctic Silver)

    It's a P4, don't sweat it dude!
    If it reboots or slows down, you have a problem. If it's running fine, go with it. The Intel PIII and 4's have thermal safeguards built in.

    Anyway, your temp at 100% CPU load would be more interesting:D

    Yeah idle temps don't matter a great deal (so long as its not extreme) but the full load temps are the ones that really count.
    Oh and P4's do run warm. :smokin:

    Arctic Silver takes a few hours and even a day or three to reach its full potential.
    As long as you applied it evenly and carefully, you should be cool as a bug in a, uh, igloo.
