    Hi, i am thinking of overclocking my P4 prescott 3.0 Ghz- 2 mb with memory 512 MB DDRII 533 Mhz my mobo is MSI PM8PM-V but before i do that i want to ask you guy if my temp is normal CPU - 49C , System - 34C. I hv only one 8mm fan on the back of the case. Do you think that temp is normal ? Oh and my PS is 300W. Thanks in advance.

    Hi iani_2006, just like yourself, it seems that there's a never ending list of questions when it comes to overclocking. Your temps are fine at present,(mine are similar)But, as you know, they will change dramatically with O/C'g. At this point I'm saving my pennies for a Thermaltake Bigwater 745. At around $AUD225.00 and the reviews I've read, make it a pretty good buy to my way of thinking. Enough of the anecdotes, here's the link to AD's Official overclocking thread.

    This is just my opinion, but I think you may need to up the PSU, to a much higher unit. If you plan on adding extra fans or make other upgrades, this psu will be a disadvantage.

    Cheers.
