sovereign001ive downloaded it and wow large program for only 5 mb. It gives all the info but im gonna remove it but where can i see my info of temperatures?

When you start the program it should give a whole bunch of temperature readings in your little tool bar at the bottom right. Just highlight over them to see what each one is.

On mine the red colored box is the CPU so I guess it would be the same as yours.

I just rebooted and it's telling me (shows the CPU temp on startup) it's now at 66°C. According to that guide I posted, this is normal for a P4.

In that guide you posted under AMD Athlon X2 it says 65 C, is that what its supposed to be idle or under load? And are there any other guides that say that? I don't really think i can trust 1 guide on the huge web :uhm: . BTW: I still don't know if I need a new cooler or not but if I do would any of you reccomend this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835106061 Seems pretty good....

Yes, that is considered one of the best aftermarket coolers.

If you buy another cooler, also pick a tube of Artic Silver 5 thermal paste (<--link), it's much better than the stuff shipped with most coolers.

60C+ is considered a no-no for temps. I am not saying that you can't run it those temps but you are severly limiting the life of your cpu. As a rule of thumb for each 10C increase in temps the CPU life is cut in half.

The big typhoon is a great cooler, but it very large and heavy. If you have a small case it might not fit.

So if I hook up my Vapochill and run my CPU at -40 degrees C or so, how long will it last? :p
