idle or under load? I'd say no if at load, and maybe a tad bit warm if at idle.
that's 44C, which isn't too bad.
whats the best temp monitoring software?
Max temperatures of CPUs http://www.heatsink-guide.com/maxtemp.htm
I use MBProbe to monitor my temps http://mbprobe.livewiredev.com/ but you do have to configure the warning levels from their default.
i use AIDA32 its just a overall summary program of your computer albsolutly the best...dont monitory temps but does tell you then..44c was at like 3days uptime, runing a few background progs but at time just on aim and offtopic
It depends on what cpu you have but I'd say your temps are fine. My Pentium 4 idles at about 46C.
When I had the stock HSF on mine it idled at 25C
BTW, make sure you NEVER put a temp sensor between the processor and the heatsink, your temperatures will most likely double... and I know a lot of people who burned out their CPU's because they put a sensor there...
I was one of them, burned out at 89C R.I.P. P4
My temp sensor is on the bottom of the heatsink but to the side and not touching the processor. When my computer was brand new and I first saw the temperatures I was a little worried, but it runs stable and all my attempts at reducing the temperature have made no difference. So, I just figure as long as it's stable I shouldn't worry about it too much.
my rule of thumb is 50C is warm, 60C start worrying and shut the computer down. my load temps are 35C
get a bigger heatsink if youre worried about it
