Hi mowersman. You got the RAM tamed then! (y)
From what I can Google, that CPU's OK up to 80 degrees Centigrade. Personally, I 'd try to keep it down no higher than the mid 60s.
Try Googling a free download of Everest Home - it'll give you loads of info on your rig. :)

Good advice.

My old cpu used to run at 87 degrees when playing games. and around 75 when idle (celcius) But i never had stability issues of crashes like blue screen etc... Its about what the CPU can tolerate. and its specs. a cpu running at 40 is ofc betetr than running at 80 but while some cpus can handle 80+ others will die at 70.

dont worry dude. otherwise McGyver a fan onto that cpu or try cleaning the thermal paste of using rubbing alcohol and repply a new batch. this can also make a 10 degree diffrence in many cases.

No this is another computer .just kinda a word processing computer
but now after 10 secs of up time its at 80 degrees i think my motherboard sensors are wrong
i turned it off unclipped the heat sink and it wasn't even warm
when i get some thermal compound for my one with ram problems (it currently has a thermal pad) ill put some on the die of this one

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Google the CPU yourself and you'll probably find that it's OK from 80 to 85 degrees Centigrade. I quoted the hope of keeping it down to 65 degrees mainly because I build AMD rigs. (Did build a Celeron once! :D ) The Athlons and Durons of that era would have fried at around 65 degrees and I used to try to keep them below 55.

Everest usually quotes 2 or 3 temperatures, dependent on what sensors it detects. Sometimes it's obvious that it's put the wrong labels against one or more of them. The temperature quoted in BIOS should be the more accurate.
