    Well it would depend on what system. If you mean the one in your sig, I like to see PentiumDs under 55C. I have one here and it is running @38C as I type this.

    It really does depend on what you've got running in the background.

    If youve got a lot of processes running that are using cpu time, then cpu temps are going to be high.

    As a general rule you shouldn't let Pentium Ds go above 60c after an extended period at full load. If they do, you need to think about a different cooling solution. Also overclocking will make a difference to cpu temps.

    I try to keep the case (motherboard) temperature no more than 10C above the room ambient. Case cooling is an often neglected component of the processor temperature. Remember, the processor heat rise starts from the ambient temperature inside the case. :)
