I have a Arctic cooling Super silent PRO TC heatsink wich I have mounted on a Pentium III 1GHz CPU without the Fan on a Compaq Deskpro EN system, but the CPU is pasing the 45C temp. my questions are:
1. Is 45-50C much for a Pentium III based on 0.18micron with passive cooling?
2. Wath problems could apear because of the high temperature?
If somebody could give me sugestions on how could I cool better the CPU with passive cooling I vould be wery happy.

for info about maximum CPU temperatures, please check out the "CPU temperatures" link on this site.

45-50C is fine for a P3 (or any other CPU). There is no need to improve cooling, and no reason to worry about damage.
