    Checked today, and got the following with Aida32:

    CPU: 111 F.
    Motherboard: 82 F.

    Room Temp. was 73F.

    ---
    Have 3 fans in case -- 1 intake, & 2 output (1 of the Output fans being the 300W. Power Supply fan). Case on front, sides, & back is cool to touch.

    You do not say what processor you are running, however that temp is not bad for most processors. If the room temp is 73F, and your mb temp is only 82F, that is pretty cool. Doing the math in my head your processor temp is 44C; again not bad for the room temp.

    BTW I just built two AMD64 systems using the new .09 939 pin processors and I am amazed at how cool they run. This system I am testing now is running 30C; I was able to get it to 35C after running UT2004 for 30 min. Much better than the new Prescott core P4s.

    That is way cool for an old thunderbird. 50C + is normal for those. You have no problem at all.
