pentium 4 operating temperature
I'm just put a pentium 4 3.4 ghz processor in my computer and i was wondering what is the safe operating temperature range (in farenheit please) for it?For God loved the world so much, that he gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have eternal life... John 3:16

They can run safely, although not ideal by most peoples standards up to around 80C (176F). Keeping a prescott under 140F under full-load is pretty decent, especially for stock cooling.
I've heard of peoples p4 prescott cpus idling around 65C and 85C Under full load without any problems.
AFter looking more at intels page, it seems the 3.4s are only rated up to the high 60s and low 70s depending on the stepping (about 155-165F)

I have a s478 3.4 Prescott. The highest I like to run is 140f. I believe the cpu will thermal throttle (slow itself down for protection) around 158f-167f.
If you have a Northwood core you want to max around 122f.What computer do you have? And please don't say a white one. - Sheldon Cooper

My P4 Prescott 3.0 stayed around 60 with the stock heatsink. Then I bought a thermaltake heatsink off a friend and its incredibley louder and it is not even cooler.My PC:37" 1080p Sceptre LCD - ASUS VENTO Case - 500w Ultra PSU - P5B Deluxe - e4300 @ 3.4ghz - 4GB DDR800 - VistionTek HD3870 - Plantronics DSP-500
