Motherboard Temperature?

I just had my computer rebuilt with a Foxconn 865G7MF motherboard/Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.06GHz processor.

My fan sounds like it's choking. Fortunately for me, Foxconn has included "Fox One" software so that I can tell you what the operating temperatures are, so here is the info:

Fan (rpm): 3040
CPU: 118 degrees F (50-53 C)
System: 97 degrees F (36-38 C)

I actually want to overclock this thing because I can do it through their software with the push of a button. But, I don't think it's wise to even try it before I know if I need to cool this computer down even more.

Can anyone give me the normal operating temperature of this system? What is a safe overclocking frequency for the chip? I am relatively new to this, so any input would help. Thanks in advance!

50 degrees for that CPU is not hot. In fact getting it to run below 50 degrees is often a challenge.

Most Intel CPUs will happily run regularly at temperatures up to the mid to high 80s, however this is often under heavy load so only need worry if it gets stuck there.

Yeah. It's pretty normal for INTEL to run at 50 C on idle or minimal load.

The temperature will shoot up pretty fast and high when you load it heavily.

One way to help is to change the Stock HSF to a better ones.

there are three good programs to monitor overclocking.





PC Wizard


They monitor temps, fan speeds and other system hardware profiles.

CPUZ is good for overclocking and gives you spects on your overclocking.

PCWizard - does benchmarks and gives a complete sytem break down...

I run an AMD- 64- 3000 .. with all the fans and the big heat sink my processor runs a cool 32c.. ( overclocked)

One other thing.. You should run a program called Prime 95 . It test stability of your system after you overclock it..

cant type tonight.... :whistling:
