Depends..... what CPU are we talking about? :?:

In general, system temperatures should stay below 40 degrees C, and CPU temps for an Athlon-based chip should not exceed 50C. Pentium 4 chips may run a little hotter, generally anything below 60~65C is fine :)

For an Athlon I'd go as high as mid 50c's. :smokin:

I've had Athlons start to produce incorrect mathematical calculations at 55C Wiggo..... better cooling fixed it. May be fine if all you do is run games, but a flaw in maths filing your tax return can be disastorous :eek:
