You appear to have a case cooling issue, have you tried removing the side panel and seeing if that helps your temperatures?

I don't think that 38 is bad for gaming at all. I have a 4200 and a 4800 and they generally run 31 idle and 38 stressed.
I notice speedfan shows no front or back case fans though? Is that so? Or is it that the case fan is plugged to psu so it doesn't show up?

If the Aux temperature is the case temperature, it's too hot.

Are those the temps you are at when idle, or under load?

Well, for idle temps they are a bit high. But I'm not too sure what would be normal for a dual-core system. Probably about 30-35°C should be OK.

OK well , i checked my system and it seems that 2 of my fans were not working . ( both on the case ) 2 , 120MM fans . and when i popped the case door off its felt a bit warm int here . so i connected the fans ( AGAIN ) and it seems to be getting coller .while the machine was still running i didn this and about 3 minutes has gone by and the CPU went from 38c to 33c in just a couple of minutes . so im sure im on the right track now ..
thanks for all the help guys .
and ill be sure to post what it runs at while idle .
Cheers T

Huh, 46 is too hot?
You bet your booties! I'm talking about case (motherboard) temperatures, not processor temperatures. If you case temperature is 46C, that's where the processor starts from.

JohnWill is right. That's not even the hottest temperatures we reach here in an Aussie summer. Imagine what the PC feels like in temperatures we call unbearable.
