  1. Believe me, I've read the sticky thread.
    from Everest home edition

    cpu 44c-45c idle
    sys 31c
    GPU 68c
    Ambient GPU 42c

    Running full tower with 3 fans
    abit ic7 max3 mobo
    zalman 9500 with arctic silver 5 on cpu
    2 sata HD
    1 DVDrw
    Audigy sound card.

    Are the temperatures high in term of CPU, Sys, GPU?
    Thanks

    My system runs at ~40C, so that's fine, but I'm wondering about your CPU&GPU.

    What CPU do you have? It seems a little high to idle like that, especially with an aftermarket cooler. What about your GPU? If that's idling I'd be a little concerned.. My Radeon X850XT (which is supposed to be a "very hot" card when gaming, in the 80s) never goes about 64C when under full load.

    Thanks for replying.
    I'm run p4 2.8/512/800 875p 478 socket
    I fixed the gpu already now it's 52-53c now. Ambient is 39c.
    But the cpu is still 42-44c. Do you have any suggestion?

    I think it's just coz ur CPU is a Prescott core one. Those usually run hot. I'm guessing it's Prescott core but I could be wrong. Check Everest Home Edition's CPU option under the Motherboard option to find out about this.

    The cpu is not Prescott. It's 512k not 1m.
    I hope that 's normal, anyone can confirm?

    Under 50C at idle is normally very good. Don't worry, it's most probably alright.

    Thanks guys. At least I know I'm in the normal range.
