I've recently procured a P4 prescott 3.2G 800fsb running on a gbyte GA-8ik1100 mb with a zalman superflowercooler attached. can someone please offer some advise on how to keep this huff-monsta cool. it seems to fluctuate wildly from 59d up to 70d (usually when running games or intensive apps), and thats with the case open. I even have an intake and 120mm outake fan connected(acousticase)
has anyone else endured the same issue as i've contacted quiet pc and apparently there have been a growning no. of reports. are there any other heating solutions available that will resolve this.

Ewiz.com sells an inexpensive water cooling rig by globalwin for $65 plus shipping. There's one review listed under yahoo. Just type "globalwin water cooling". It's also possible your hardware monitor program is reading too high. I only use the bios hardware monitor for accuracy. Prescott's run pretty warm anyway. I had my old 2.4b hit 80 celcius twice, and it still worked.

Just to let you know that watercooling kit is worse than most thermalright/swiftech air cooling products.

my temp monitoring app actually reads lower than in bios, and I'm not sure I really want to go down the watercoolant route.
I read somewhere of using a hyper6 thingy, to cool it down, but who knows. surely there must be something out there?!

I highly recommend the Hyper6 with a second papst low RPM fan, it'll be absolutely silent(20dB), it'll probably cool your chip by about 10-20C.

Those prescotts do burn pretty damn hot when at high load. I havent had much luck with using air solutions to keep that element cool. Go ahead and make sure you are getting good case irrigation. Water-Cooling is really the best thing to start off with the prescotts.
