Celeron D runs HOT, HOT, HOT!
Sunday, June 25, 2006
Currently, I am using an Intel Celeron D Socket 478 @ 2.53Ghz, and let me tell you, this thing runs HOT! Idle is around 60 degrees (celcius) and under load it gets up to 65-67 degrees! I was just watching the latest diggnation podcast, and suddenly it was running around 72 degrees!!! This is insane! I don't like the thought of my processor running this hot! So far, my system has not shut down, so the tempreture is within the CPU's limits. Obviously, the stock cooling is crap (loud too). But, is it normal for Celerons to run this hot? The Celeron is a fine processor though, it can do most anything I throw at it (except gaming). I hope to soon upgrade to an AMD 3500+ Socket 939 (maybe OC it to ~2.7ghz). Untill then, looks like I will be living with a rather warm processor!
