    living in delhi
    i have p4 1.8 ghz,512 mb ram,
    64 mb ati graphics card and intel D845GEBV2 board
    i have installed intel active moniter
    which keeps an eye on the cpu temp

    when i play games such as
    halo or rise of nations the program
    gives an alarm after 15-20 min that
    the temp of
    processor zone is > 60 'C
    system zone1 is > 50 'C
    system zone2 is > 55 'C
    the fan is running properly
    is this normal???

    please indicate the operating enviorment what i mean is that if you operate the pc on a hot day in jaisalmer or bikaner the temp are ok but in bangalore or shimla(both are same) the temp are on a higher side BUT well within normal parameters.
    regards pradeep

    Its better to avoid the CPU temperature reaching 75 'C, System area 65'C

    Try putting additional exaust and intake fans. ( When you do so check that your SMPS has enough wattage reading to give more power)

    Also if you need, put a HDD cooler fan.

    > 60c is not good for a p4 1.8
    remove ur heatsink from the processor .. get some good quality thermal paste ... reapply on processor
    then reinstall heatsink and fan
    BTW .. i use an amd 2600 and my comp is on 24hours ... my cpu temperatures do not exceed 60C .. and thats normal for an amd

    appling a heat simk compound is a tricky task. first one has to completly remove any old stickon type of heat conductive material present on the cpu and the heatsink then the layer of heatsink compound has to be applied in a thin film (use a blade to achive a plain thin finish without any up and down formations) excess heatsink compound is bad also the quality of heatsink past is important dont use the off the shelf rs 8/- to rs 25 /- small bottle get the branded tube from afcoset or such good company the good past has a thick consistency and does not dry up even after years of exposure to air.
    i used the method and was able to get a fall in temp of about 3 - 4 c
