    Got the desktop working recently, but I'm a tad concerned, the CPU at idle sits

    in the 29-32C range and goes up to about 40C when I'm playing Microsoft Train

    Simulator with [email protected] and other apps in the background. The CPU is at stock

    speeds and Rambo says his maxes at 45C and his is at 3.03GHz.

    Do I need a case fan to help get the air circulating in the tower box?

    OTOH, it appears your running well within reasonable limits, personally I wouldn't do anything to it.

    Well, maybe warm. :p I think there are a number of better looking women if you get your pick of anyone you like. ;)
