    At what temperature is considered "normal". Im running a pentium 3 933, and my case temperatures are in the late 30's (celsius), but my processor is at right about 50. Is this normal, or should i take xtra measures for cooling?

    50 is a little high in my mind idling. I am running an P3 850 @ 1054 with an idle cpu temp of 38. I believe intel says 70 max but the machine will lock up well before that. Are you using retail fan/heatsink or another combo. If you installed yourself did you use thermal paster or even better arctic silver paste. My opinion
