    it is normal for my computer to be running around 102-104 degree celsius? i am running 384mb ram, on windows ME with updated BIOS, creative sound blaster audigy 2, ati radeon 9600pro 128mb,(it requires 300watts for normal operation)pentium 4 1.50GHz. its a sony vaio digital studio with stock power supply(ACPI 1.0 compliant). maybe its time for a cooler? if so what are your recommendations?
    thank you so much!!:D

    40 C isn't bad ...not worth buying a new HSF for, unless you're a fanatic like some of us ;)

    but the real question is ...what is your max load temp? That is the one you need to worry about.

    Damn! are you sure your talking about celcius? I mean, 102-104 Celcius is kinda burning man! your lucky some plastic part of your mobo didn't melt :laugh:
    Definitely you need a new cooler.

    lol, I've got to read posts better... I saw a 3 digit temp and just 'read' Fahrenheit
    104 C = 219.2 F :laugh: :flames:

    at 104 C your cpu would be a worthless piece of smoking silicon

    it sounds like its either farenheit not celcius or the sensor is extremely inaccurate cos 100C is:flames:

    there is no simple way to check the PSU temp as far as I know, the wattage should be printed on the side

    the mobo temp is a bit high though...what is your room temp?

    still would like to know what the CPU temp is when it is at max load

    by max load I mean your CPU is running at 100% ...get something like 3DMark2001 or anysoftware that will run your CPU at 100% for more than a few minutes and then give us your CPU temp and mobo temp
