    I dont really have major issue with it, but it runs hot! I had it for couple of years and since the day i got it, its been running hot.

    Idle non gaming temp is 55 degree

    Depending on the game, the temperature gets up to 110 degree. Games like BattleField Bad Company 2 pushes it to 110 degree constant.

    Thing is, my games run smoothly and they dont crash. Currently running stock heatsink but i tried Zalman for awhile but it makes no difference. I got one fan in the back, one on the side, and one in front. My pc has no hardware issue, is just the processor runs hot. Everything else is just fine.

    My spec:
    Nvidia geforce 9600
    amd althon 6400
    4 gb corsair memory
    Dfi Lan PArty motherboard AM2 +

    Its an older AMD CPU... but the temps are more than fine.

    When it comes to Computer temps, we refer to the Celsius readings... using F is a bit confusing for most... yet otherwise we use F for outsite and food temps :)

    110f = 43c.... you're running fine. 50c+ be concerned, 55+ starts to be a problem.

    Even todays faster and higher clocked AMD CPUs... like the X4 955 running 3.4Ghz and 4 cores will idle in the mid 30s and tend to max out in the low-40s on load.
