    Anybody reading this can you tell me if my temps should be this high? Here is my system

    Coolermaster atc-410 case
    antec 550 watt powersupply
    Asus P4PE Motherboard
    Intel P4 2.66
    Alpha PAL8942 - Socket 478 with a Vantec tornado fan installed
    Artic Silver 3 as my thermal grease.
    Ati 9700 Pro
    2 Western Digital 120 Drives in a Raid Array
    pioneer 16x DVD player
    Plextor Burner
    Sound blaster audigy2 platinum

    I used the stock case fans and when i check the temps i had the side panel off.
    I went into the bios and double checked the temps and i get a maximum of 43C and a low of 38C when i first turn it on. i think these are to High of temps...WHat do you guys think, any solutions. i originally had a Volcano 7+ on there and after reading a review in Maximum Pc i got me the Alpha and the tornado fan, the said it is the best setup...i figured that i must be doing something wrong. With the Volcano 7 i was getting a constant 42C and about 46 while playing Battlefield 1942 for about an hour.

    Any ideas?
