    Well put it this way: 100C = 212F at which water boils. Thus 160c == 320F!

    65C = 149F

    How are you getting your temperature reads? If these are real temperatures how are you not shutting down? How are you not melting down! :dead:

    I dont know

    I am using speed fan. Ok first this is what happened I had another dell about the same and it ended up having a line of blow capacitors/bulging. So I took out the

    Video Card

    and put it into another computer I had. What can be the problem can it be the videocard that is bad? I have bought AS to apply to

    the CPU but it is about the same. I did notice the PSU get hot very quick. Is there another software to run that would give me better

    realtime temps

    65c is not too hot, from the standpoint of the cpu... but it is very difficult to keep running a unit at that temperature unless you have a very good cooling system. Many processors can run at 65C for a long time. But everything in that case is suffering unless you are moving a lot of air out and in.
