    Im running a AMD 1800XP+/MSI KT3 Ultra2/256DDR333/40GIG 7200 maxtor. Ive got a AMD heatsink which is keeping my CPU cool at 50c and my sys temps are around 40-45, i dont have any case fans and the panel is closed...i get great performance out of it, im wondering if this is hazerdous and if i need a few fans, although it doesnt seem like i do...

    There are fans that are almost silent out there (they don't push lots of air but they do push some). ;)

    If those are temps while under load, then you should be fine. I don't know what kind of case you have, but it is usually pretty easy to add at least an intake fan at the lower front of the case. Sometimes it looks like there is not much of a path for air to enter the way cases are designed, but after you clean those fans a couple of times, you know air is getting in. It is a quick, easy, and cheap way that usually knocks a few degrees of cpu temp.

    40-45C is a little warm try adding an intake fan and reduce it to below 35. My rule of thumb is 2-4 degrees above your room temperature.

    Honestly i wouldn't worry about it...as long as you don't pass 55 or so...you are good...

    Look into room temps and case cooling...see if you can get it cooler considering those factors

    I don't even think I've seen my case lower then 2 degrees higher then room temp........let alone CPU.

    You wont be able to keep at that level without watercooling, or lots (10 or so) of very noisy fans. 40-45 is quite warm for case temp, also 50C is a little high, so long as you arent going far over 50C you should be fine, you will start to experience stability problems due to heat at about 60C.

    The absolute highest my CPU has ever gotten was 47.7C (118F), and this is under full load. I'm talking running programs that intentional burn the CPU. Usually on average though I'm running about 40.5C (105F)

    Keep it under 50 & you are safe. (2-4 degrees above room temp would be great if possible)
