Abit worried about my Temperatures

  1. Hi , are these temperatures too hot ?

    CPU 53C (idle)

    System temp 28C (idle)

    My fan speeds are ..... CPU around 4600rpm ... 120mm exaust around 1600rpm

    My system currently has a 120mm exaust fan at the back.

    I am thinking of replacing that fan with a more powerful one to suck more air out , and I also have a grill on the side to fit another 120mm fan blowing air in.
    I figure that should get things a little cooler

    but i just want to know if my temps are normal ?

    thanks ................ John

    Just played UT2004 for 30 mins and my temps have gone up to...........

    CPU temp 66C................System temp 30C

    I know the Prescott chips run hotter , but are these temps ok ?

    66C is hot, but not too hot nor dangerous for the Prescotts, and depending on the system configuration can be quite normal.

    You're just fine, and I wouldn't worry unless you start to get system instability during cpu-intensive tasks.
