    Puter is working fine but have recently noticed some hangs when trying to close programs. There are 2 systems in the room and this room is usually warmer than the rest of the house. These temp readings were taken in the early a.m before the heat of a Houston summer. I have a top if the line Antec case with 2 fans running and OEM heatsink and fan. Any suggestion would be appreciated !

    Mine idles at 44C with the stock HS/fan, and gets up to 50-51C under full load for an extended time. The MB is sitting at 42C, so I doubt it'll get much cooler. :)

    You're talking about idle, right? Because mid 50s is not bad at all under full load. My Pentium D Dual Core is mid to high 40s idle and mid 50s under load or to the low 60s under extended load (like a long video file processing). And I use water cooling. These dual cores run hot.

    The Intel dual-cores maybe. As I said, I have the stock HS/fan on my AMD X2 4200, and it gets to 50-51C under full load.

    The numbers I gave are at rest , and during the AM when the room is the coolest . I just sampled the temp now after some minor surfing ....

    Field Value
    GPU 55 °C (131 °F)

    and is this a normal voltage , I have no need to overclock and add to the temp ..


    Voltage Values
    CPU Core 0.03 V
    Aux 0.43 V
    +3.3 V 0.24 V
    +12 V 0.91 V

    Thanks for yalls input!

    Yes, I meant for idle, with mid 50's for under load.

    FYI, my X2 3800+ O/C'd idles in the mid 30's with the stock heatsink if its a correct reading.

    That's good--just bought one of those for a build for my wife's computer. So you think the stock heatsink will be fine? It won't be overclocked and the only heave use it will get will be for Photoshop which really isn't a continuous load like video editing or gaming.

    The stock AMD64 heatsinks are good, almost never a need to replace them.

    I have three AMD machines, all have stock HS/fan. None have overheating issues. I have a couple of Intel systems, on the 3.2ghz Northwood core, I had to give it a Zalman HS/fan to keep the temperatures in a comfortable range. With the stock HS/fan, the processor would hit 62-63C under load, the new HS/fan it keeps it in the mid 50's.

    62-63C on a Northwood core is pretty warm for a Northwood. Do the chassis have airguides?

    I am running a 3.0ghz. Northwood in an Antec 1080AMG chassis and a 3.2ghz. Northwood in an Antec TX1050B chassis. Both chassis had airguides, an 80mm in the 1080 and a 92mm in the TX1050. I removed both airguides and installed a Vantec 80mm fan in the 1080 and an Vantec 92mm fan in the TX1050. Both machines now run about 45-48C under normal load with the stock Intel coolers with the Honeywell thermal pads.

    Yes they are good on dual core cpu's but I found not so on older XP cpu's where I could always gain 10 c with a 3rd party heat synch and fan.

    Intel dual cores run 10 degrees hotter and maybe more than Amd dual core cpu's so I would not compare them. I have 2 Amd dual core that run mostly in 32c range and when pushed might get up to 50C whereas most Intel dual cores I have built start at 55-60c.
