    Does anyone know the average temp an Intel P4 530j skt775 is supposed to run at?
    I just built 2 identical systems using this chip and one sits at 50/51c and the other at 60c. The system temp is 28/30c on both.
    Been trawling the intel site for info but aint finding what I need, no mention of the "ideal" temp in supplied documentation other than system below 38c.
    Thanks in advance

    its not unusual to see a figure with a difference that small as it could really just be down to the application of thermal paste, and or/how the heatsink was originally placed on the processor, a little slip will cause the paste to smear and be slightly less effective, or if u applied ur own paste, a difference there will equate to a difference

    I know my system used to average around 40 something under normal load, but a) i dont have any temp monitors installed anymore
    and b) i run WCG now which maxes my processor out most the time lol

    i think 50 - 60 sounds reasonable for a processor of that spec
    but i cant be sure

    the do ALOT of reviews with processors, they may well comment on the temp and how it compares to others/weather its acceptable or not

    Hello Mrnice,
    I found this it may help you. scrool down to idenitfying your processor. I couldn't give you a direct link because I couldn't tell which processor was yours. However, this does give you the thermal spec as in the example I posted below. Let us know how it goes.

    CPUID String
    Package Type
    775 pin PLGA Core Voltage
    Bus Speed
    800 MHz Thermal Guideline
    Core Stepping
    E0 Thermal Spec
    L2 Cache Size
    1 MB Manufacturing Technology
    90 nm
    L2 Cache Speed
    3.80 GHz Bus/Core Ratio

    Thanks again for the input guy's. After reseating the heatsink I got it down to 51c. The new clamp design on the cpu is good, the heatsink clamps are kinda crappy.
