i just recently installed a p4 3.2 prescott. it's not oced right now.i did oc it to 3.4 a few days ago. and the temps were fine. but i put everything back to default settings and now my computer is hot as hell! my cpu is idling @ 47C right now! it crashes in games too. at least now it's no longer a video problem.
and yes, i put on arctic silver on my cpu. i have a thermalright sp 94 with a 92" tornado. even with the tornado turned on full (5000 rpm), i idle @ 47. and i'm not even ocing!
and just 2 days ago i was ripping 4 dvds to xvid all night, and it didn't crash or anything. my temps went up to 56C that night, and it didn't crash. why is it crashing on games now?
