Default PC temperature

hmmmm...lotsa rendering to do..
I just upgraded my PC fully with the new ASUS Mother board, the new Pentium D processer, GeForce 7950 GX2 graphics card, 1gig ram....and other stuff.

But It seems that is is running hot...
I even got a brand new "big" fan and power so as not to overload..

my pc gauge tells me it is running at over 67 degrees celcius..

Is this too hot?
what is the norm for PC running temperatures?
Is it possible that the guy installed the 'heat sink' incorrectly?
Or am I just being paranoid?

anyone know about this kind of thing?

Its hot but about what it would be when its running full out.

Worry if this starts to creep up over a period of time (long rendering).

You can do a google search for your processor you should find the max temp. It will also depend on the temprature of the environment the PC is in to a degree.

1. motherboard temp gagues can be off by like 10 deg in some extreme cases
2. its a little hot but i wouldnt worry strt worryin wen it gets in the 80' as thats gettin near most cpu melting point
3. if ur comcerneed add some case fans. in this way
cool (outside air) is injected at the bottom anhot air extracted at the top
add these to the side or back pannels (logic says it works as hot air rises an this is wat u want to get rid of)
i have this an i run my AMD at around 30-40 deg even wen maxing out


ps fans r like 50p an u can daisy chain them

good luck

The Pentium family cant really fry themselves, they have a thermal throttle system.

If they get to hot they slow down (Clock down) and if they really really hot they just stop, until they cool down.

As it turned out after too much worry about overheating, was that a wire dangling from the mother board was touching the fan causing it to slow down and at time stop completely...
would never have thought that was the poblem...sliced the wire up a bit..but its ok now...

Sheesh...

Not a common problem...but something to watch out for...
Take care...

Also the Netburst Intel architecture (P4/PD) absolutely sucks for throwing off heat. The GX2, particularly from Asus runs (quote HotHardware.com) "Chilipepper hot" so don't expect it to run as easy as the AMD or IntelCore architecture, or a cooler GPU.

That said, you shouldn't have any problems with it (apart from the fan thing); its designed to go hot.
