Temperatures, Yet again

    OK, I ran an MSI K7T Turbo for a few years and achieved good cooling, good
    temps with a variety of processors. Best I could do was with an XP2400
    undervolted to 1.5v and cpu temps of 35-37c. Silly me flashed the board with
    an illegal bios and killed it. I purchased, as a replacement an Asrock K7V88
    and continue to use the XP2400 o/c to 2.GHz. I know temps are relative to
    setup, and this line of questioning has been flogged ad nauseum, but my
    question is ' Can going to a newer board with the P3 connector offer more
    efficient power demand by the CPU and actually lower temps compared to older
    setups? ' As I type this, my temp for the CPU is 32c.
    Interesting sidenote - I chose a board with a Via chipset again and it was
    a simple physical install of the board and the sys lit up. Installed LAN and
    audio drivers and that was it. Having the Via Hyperion drivers already
    installed negated the headaches commonly associated with board changes.
    Gonna see if I can 2.3 or 2.4.

    Thanks,

    Garry
