Default P4 chip makes too much noise

This may sound odd, but I get a splitting headache from the high pitched noise from my P4 2.6C. I'm not sure it's the chip itself, but it originates somehere near the heatsink and is way louder when I stress my cpu so I asume it's the chip itself.

Can this problem be solved? My amd 2ghz made a similar sound, but much less loud.

make sure the heatsink is properly seated, what are your temps?

idle temp is about 15 degrees, stressed 30 degrees over room temp.

Sounds a lot, but ppl say the is7 reads 15 degrees to high. I get really high temps on both my is7's, with both an SLK900 and a stock 3.2C cooler, and both a 2.8 and a 2.6C, so I think the heatsink is properly seated.

When I remove the heatsink of my P4 it's start to makes a hissing sound also, or when the cpu is not cooled enough (bad contact with heatsink) it makes the same sound.

I've checked and the stock 3.2C cooler is totally concave, it doesn't touch the cpu at all.

Oddly the P4 2.6C remains stable while gaming at 3.4Ghz.

But when I install my SLK900 (wich makes perfect contact), I've got the same hissing sound. :/

try removing the heatsink from your CPU, check the sound, should be hissing.

Just tried it. It doesn't make more sound when I remove the heatsink.

CPU temp skyrockets though.

so even without a fan attached to the system your CPU is hissing?

if so: RMA,

you will call them and say that you installed it with the default intel cooler, and that is has a hissing sound.

Ok, i'll try the 2.8C first. If it makes the same noise, RMA won't be the solution.
