    Hello Hardware Gurus!
    This isn't a problem, but a request for helpful advice that may prevent future problems. I have taken these data from my BIOS:

    Current CPU Temp: 42C/107F
    Board (system) : 29C/84F
    Warning Temp : 63C/145F
    Shutdown " : 70C/158F

    Should I change the warning & shutdown temps? should I get another fan? I have only the cpu and power supply fans at the present.

    That's really not that hot, but the true test is how hot it gets when it has a load on the processor and vid card.
    An additional case fan or two sure wouldn't hurt

    Where in the bios does it talk about CPU temps and all that? I was in the bios on my computer earlier and saw nothing like that.

    Some (or most?) new mobo's have temperature sensors on the CPU and board. Most older boards do not. Also, my board supports the 3 pin fan connector which allows fan RPM monitoring. Mine is ~4,700.

    The highest, under load, Temps were: CPU: 51C/123F and board: 38C/100F.
