    Default Average or hot?

    Got the desktop working recently, but I'm a tad concerned, the CPU at idle sits

    in the 29-32C range and goes up to about 40C when I'm playing Microsoft Train

    Simulator with Folding@Home and other apps in the background. The CPU is at stock

    speeds and Rambo says his maxes at 45C and his is at 3.03GHz.

    Do I need a case fan to help get the air circulating in the tower box?
