my idle is about 42C and load jumps to near 60C


i have another HSF but dont wanna bother with switching it out with the retail.


so with the stuff i have right now how much of an OC can i reasonably get with these base temps?

Those are high temps, try 10 to 20 higher fsb. You should definitely install a better cooling heatsink.

The odds of messing up a P4 chip by chaning the HSF is low very very low in comparison to that of an Athlon. I would look into a better HSF for that system. Also, you don't need to get one of the ones that mounts throught the board, you can get one that uses the existing bracket around the CPU, doing that should be fairly easy.

and the stuff that came on my spark 5 got a little smeared, would that affect anything?
