    I need some software that can alert me when my computer's temprature is too high.
    The reason for this is I recently moved my whole system into my closet with foam padding to reduce it's 50 db total sound from all the cooling fans down to a nice 12-15 db. It's been working great too. All i do to access the cd drives is open my closet up. (i only use them to burn things once in awhile, but mostly run all my apps off virtual cds).
    I can finally get a good nights rest "With" the computer on hopefully.

    Here are my pc's current temp stats:

    System Temp: 47 C
    CPU Temp: 58 C
    Fan Speed: 4821

    is this ok? It's been on for about 3 hours in the closet so far.

    edit: I just put a modern size fan next to it on Medium speed, with a layer of pillows covering the front, size, and top all around the pc+modern fan.
    The pc's current temp stats are now:

    System Temp: 39 C
    CPU Temp: 50 C
    Fan Speed: 4821

    you are ok, but that is pretty hot... what cooling are you using?
    Your basic cpu fan with a slightly rectangulare heat sink (that damn thing makes atleast 40 db noise), and currently added a modern fan runnin at slowest (lol and it's actually not as loud as the cpu fan)

    I'm thinkin about upgradein mine to that 20db Zalman CNPS7000

    i took away the pillows.. they didnt add much sound reduction.
    The closet doors being closed instantly cuts off atleast 15db of sound.

    So If i made the cpu fan go from 1500 rpm to 2000 rpm, will that hurt it?
