    I'm no expert, but I think 45C for a PIII is a little high, but not in dangerous territory ;)

    A common value for system temperature specification is 35C (95F). A value for systems where air conditioning is not available and ambient temperatures are high is 40C (104F).

    That's straight off this page at Intel

    The P3and 4 reccomendations at intel for thermal managment involve measuring the temperature of the air entering the HSF at a location 0.3 inch above the center of the fan. According to them, if you can get that to hover at 30C -- your sitting pretty.

    No worries dude, the thermal protection built into the PIII and P4 will shut down/scale back the CPU before any damage can be done.

    I've been running at 100% CPU cycles 24/7 for months on a stock HSF with absolutely no problems:thumb:

    If that PIII is made properly at the factory, you have nothing to fear except an unexpected lock-up if it gets too hot. (If you've ever used a Win9x OS -- you know how to cope with that):laugh:

    With the standard Intel HSF, those temperatures are nothing to worry about - relax :)

    Personally - I think your doing fine ATM.
    If you want to try a more aggresive OC, or if it would make you more comfortable, you could certainly try an aftermaket heatsink/fan.
