  1. Hi everyone. I recently bought a new computer that has a e6600. I installed all the pieces myself and i am not sure wether or not i did everything correctly. I downloaded speedfan software and after playing a company of heroes for a while or any other game i get about 53C for the system and 52C for the CPU. The only fans that i have in my computer are the cpu fan, the power supp fan and the video card fan which is a 8800 gts. I want to know if the temperatures are too high or not. Thanks !

    CPU temp is OK. But system temp is too high. Maybe you should try Everest Home, it's more accurate than Speedfan.

    Speedfan loves to report stupid temps. It reported me a 120° C CPU temp!!!

    It is normally the temperature inside the computer. If your case has space for a rear 80mm fan, you should add one. It can really help :)

    Wow, that's high! Is the card idling? What videocard is it?
