    Temp of what?

    CPU?
    If so, what kind is it and are you running it stock?
    Right now you're motherboard is 6C warmer than my chip is....

    Have you any idea what your case ambient temp is?

    That is entirely dependent on what equipment you are monitoring.

    My mother's eMachine with a Athlon 2200+ runs all day,evry day, at temps very similar to yours.
    If my rig ran that hot it would be in pieces on the floor in a heartbeat.

    Have you any stability problems?

    You should always worry.


    As for your temps... As soon as your CPU gets near 60C (like yours) you should look into a better cooling solution.

    Does your CPU get any hotter under load or is that under full load?

    8 hours is not relevant.

    If you run your PC for 30 minutes under full load and you don't exceed the 54C like you posted then that's ok.

    15 year old's don't have a vote, so there's no point in them being politically correct.

    Other than that, do you have the strength to lift all the parts? If so, it's no harder than for anyone else.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
