I would say the maximum temperature should be around 80 degrees celcius. Anything close to 100 is critical, 35-40 is normal, so there's nothing to worry about looking at your current temperature.

yeah! thanks for the reply m8. i have never seen it run above 39C

take into mind its a p4 prescott ht 3.20@ 3.472mhz so as you can see i have it slightly clocked the cpu when playing bf2 all settings high except texture= medieum @1280=1024 after playing for half hour the cpu temp reads 46C is that fine

got a quick cooling question of my own to any of you informed peeps:

Is 71 degrees Celsius @ idle unusually hot for my bfg 6800 gt oc card? I recall reading the heatsink on my particular card is rather useless...

looking for any advice on keeping the card and letting it kill itself under the lifetime warranty or maybe plopping in one of those zalman copper vga coolers and some ocz ramsinks...

for comparisons sake: my cpu/internals @ idle hover around 41-45 degrees in this balmy california home of mine.

I guess though that it caught my attention when I loaded up need for speed most wanted and the temps on the gpu hit just under 100 C booting me back to the desktop with Danger Will Robinson warning.

Yes. That is hot.. very hot.. too hot me thinks.

Does the HS physically feel hot to you and how far, if at all is the card overclocked.

try taking off the heatsink, and put some AS5 on the GPU, that may drop the temp by about 5-10c on that particular card/cooler, i had the same thing and it sucked also, i would suggest buying the Arctic Cooling NV5 v2/v3, or the Zalman VF700 for the card. it will drop the idle temp to around 54c. or you could just WC it and be set there

thanks for the replies guys. yeah, it gets pretty hot. I threw in an exhaust fan by the video card to see if maybe airflow was a problem but it's pretty efficient with the 4 fans already in there...must be a crap hs.

I've been eying the zalman cooler for several weeks now. if I can get a hold of it this weekend that'll be my project - along with using the arctic silver 5 I had left over from a prior build. right about now water cooling isn't an option.
