edit: To give you an idea...you said you're hits 110? My proc, just sitting at the desktop not being used, runs around 135...
Mine when just surfing the web (like now) is right under 110 (109.7). I have my motherboard set to auto shut down the PC when the CPU temperature hits 142...and when that happens I know to clean it out (and of course it always happens when I am really into the game also). It has only had to shut down on me a couple times as I clean it regularly. But that is also way below the P4’s threshold though (the 142). And yes I am talking Fahrenheit :).
But I also have a big big case with not much in it, just one case fan though. But the airflow through it is great (which is why I have to dust it every 3-4 weeks because it pulls so much damn air through and for some reason dust fucking loves heat sinks).
The room it is in is 78 degrees right now, and I am conservative with the A/C so quite often it gets in the mid 80’s in here but as long as I have a fan blowing on me it is comfortable (when the humidity is good); and I never have a problem when the room is in the mid 80’s either.
Actually, also wait a minute. I have a Prescott P4 3.2 HT’ed running at the 800MHZ. Do you have a Prescott (E model version) or before Prescott? I know they changed things around a little and maybe that could a difference too.
