    CPU very hot!!!


    I have a Pentium4 3.2 GH HT. My case seems very good, with many holes...

    I've added the system fan wich runs at @ 2000 RPM, and I have also a double fun on my HDD... air come out very fast!!!

    However, my lower CPU temperature is @63/65, and when I use it it can go up to 81!!!

    This can be safe? It's a very hot temperature...

    This link might help you out. It looks as though that temperature is relatively safe, though if you still feel concerned, you could get a better CPU fan.

    You might want to remove your heatsink, clean the heatsink compound from it and then reinstall it with good quality heatsink compound, like Arctic Silver. If the heatsink is not well installed, it will not properly cool the CPU.
