A Pentium4 processor with Prescott core puts out more than 100W of heat by itself.

If you've got a high performance video card and some hot hard-drives, they might add another 80W when you're playing 3D games.

Could it be my fanless case producing all the heat? (HP Case Still)
A quick test would be to turn yer computer off one night and see... Wink Smile


Well...I run a webserver and a shoutcast server from this computer and I really can't shut it down for a whole night....it's shut down like twice a month or shut down if the power goes out Confused

I may just buy a new case and a bunch of those new thermaltake silent fans...a cold cathode with the on/off switch so I can turn it off at night so I can sleep, and ledless fans Wink

ASUS Probe says I'm at 91 degrees, I never get over 93, even when gaming...then again, I've got an AMD XP2000, not real high end, so depending on what you've got the temp will be higher or lower...

No, your computer has a fever. It needs 2 tylenol every 8 hours and plenty of sleep.

It's actually amazing how much a single PC can heat.

My room many years ago was a little bit on the small side (back in the single days with 2 roomies)

I only had one PC and in the cold days would actually make me open the window, in the summer days, with AC on, would actually make me open the window Laughing

Let the heat out in the summer, let the heat out in the winter. As a fatter of mact (hehe) I am still using that same heatsink (thermalright sk6) on my barton 2500+( with 10k delta screamer, thats still running and has been for about 4 years straight)

tyme for an upgrade Rolling Eyes

so were you at Clarkson or SUNY Potsdam?

Clarkson. I had a good friend and roomate senior year that was dating a girl from SUNY.

In other news, the two AMD puters we have in the den seem to keep it really warm, wasn't fun in the summer, should be nice this winter.


I have some fond memories of long distance treks from Worcester (WPI) up to Clarkson and SUNY. I got stranded in Potsdam for a week when my clutch died in Massena on a beer run. That would have been in the spring of 1981.

Back on topic, I found some more dryer vent hose and the vent outlet that I was going to install for the dryer but never got around to (and then moved houses). I think I'm going to build a fresh air supply for under the desk. I need to find an inline fan that won't sound like a jet engine. I can draw fresh air from the cool(er) side of the room. As it is, the P4-EE running Folding on both hyperthreads is now at 42C and the FX5900 chip is running at 54C. Which I think is not too bad, considering. The case is a lot cooler than it was on Friday night when I started this exercise.
