I installed the TSC program on my computer at my work (the same computer that scored me 81 points on 3dmark03) and my temps jumped up to 57C at full load. Now for me this is really high, but is it okay for a non-critical computer running its stock heatsink? Or is it just to high to run at full throttle?

At idle the temps are around 42C

It's fine. In the summer heat, I've seen mine near 60C.

Alright, I feel better about it now. Even though I dont have to pay if I burn it out, I still dont want to do that. But I guess that running full load at 60C with nothing else running isnt so bad.

Plus, I remember my old Compaq 800MHz running at 85C. I took the CPU and fan out of it and put it in a motherboard that would show temps. Still running five years later.

Now that it is slightly cooling off out there, no longer 95+ everyday with extreme humidity, PC Wizard 2005 says that the processor temp is now around 49C. Thats an 8-10 degree drop so I guess I can blame the high temps on the high temps.

I just checked my home computer temps and since we are repainting the living room, where I keep my computer, we have the A/C turned off with just the windows open and my processor temp went from average of 34C up to 46C now. Room temp makes a big difference. I would hate to see how hot it would have run in the 95+ heat without the A/C on.
