    I have an MSI 845 ultra..MS-6398 MoBo..
    P4 1.7ghz/256/400 FSB.... 512mb DDR333.
    128mb AGP video,,
    The cpu heatsink and fan came with the cpu.
    I have 3 case fans.
    fan on the cpu, moBo chipset, agp card and of
    course the power supply..
    That's a total of 7 fans,..
    Case is a tall 5 bay tower.

    O/S is Win XP pro..

    The entire case was blown and cleaned out this
    morning..

    The problem I think I have is CPU heat...
    Sensors indicate 120*F on the cpu and
    84*F case temp.. Sensor indicates the cpu fan
    is running 3200-3300rpm...(slow ???)

    I have no problem with shutdown.. I just can't
    seem to get anyone to admit what a proper P4 1.7ghz
    temp should be..
    Thank you
    HAROLD

    About a week ago I used a freebe utility called MBM-5.
    Never did like it. Actually use the "Hardware Monitor Seteup"
    within the AMI v1.5 Bios....
    Talked with Inter because the fan and heatsink came with the
    cpu... They told me don't worry about the fan speed or the
    120F temp... runs also about 49c temp....

    This machine is one of my home builts.. using it about 1 yr now.
    Run dual boot winXP Pro and win 98se...
    No problem with it except I don't believe a cpu fan should be
    running below 5,000 rpm... unit has cpu temp sensor and case
    temp sensor..
