CPU Temperature Too High ?

I had a older 3500+ that ran at 38,... then had a FX-60 that ran at around 55 to 60.

Even when i run a game on this computer i seldom run over 48°.You probably need to check the thermal paste on the CPU heatsink and maybe redo it to lower temps.Some computers like Dell and E-machines have lousy cpu heatsinks so looking into a better heatsink may fix your problem.

I do have an e-Machines and I will try a new heatsink.
Here are my temps and the programs running.
By the way, how do I turn up the rpm,s on my fans like yours SRX660?
Also, thank you both for your quick responses.

Its not a surprise that you have a emachine. Mine seems to crank up the heat itself on my P4 2.4 ghz
The temps reach to at least 70 degrees celsius! HOT!

Thanks a bunch.

this is the reason I stay away from my local computer supply store
I am now in the process of building a new system for myself and am on a borrowed laptop
this is my first build from scratch normally i just buy a new system and upgrade it a little bit
so i want to take my time and build it perfectly
all this from wanting to install a new cpu heatsink
p.s. WOW does this get expensive

1. I know each piece of hardware in the computer and how it was installed.
2. The computer is not built down to a price but up to a standard.
3. I have hardware that better than any factory built computer built in the stores.
Many people just don't know how much better a Sound blaster sound card sounds, over on-board sound, at louder volumes. They can't understand why some games don't play well on their on-board graphics built into the computer. The main thing to me is i don't take it to a shop to get fixed, i fix it myself. No one chooses for me what i want in a computer. If i want a computer that looks like a basketball i can have that. I get exactly what i want.
I could say volumes more about building your own but you will know when you do it. I will never go back to accepting mediocre.

I also learned a lesson about remembering to wear an anti-static wrist band, when I took out the fan on my e-machine the cpu was stuck to it with the old compound so I took it off and set it down and went to get the new tube of thermal compound when I came back into the room I forgot to snap the cord back on my wriststrap..................I cant find a 478 socket cpu
I was going to give this to my brother since he does not have a pc.
Now, about my new machine
intel core 2 duo E6400 conroe cpu and wintec ampx 4GB (4 x 1GB) ram on an abit IN9 motherboard 500 gb sata hd and 3 ide to sata connectors for my old hd and dvd-rw drives xion solaris case a 1000 watt ps and a 17" lcd screen and i also installed an outlet on its own breaker
total cost - priceless

Intel 2.4 for $45 + $5 shipping
Intel 2.8 for $70
Newegg has another northwood and 2 prescott 478 CPU's still for sale. Funny thing is that i have seen fried motherboards, burnt memory, dead video cards, but i have not run across a dead intel processor yet. I took one that i was told was dead and installed it in a intel 865 pemy motherboard and the dang thing fired up. Yes, i did have to clear the cmos on the motherboard to clear the error messages i was getting about "over temp" on the processor, but i am still running this computer as my MP3 storage server for almost a year now.
A little something i found on some E-Machine computers is that replacing the power supply with a good one saved at least 2 computers from the scrap heap. I fixed these comp's before the factory PS's did any damage. They were acting very weird and crashing quite a lot. They had not failed completely when i was looking at them to figure out what the problem was. I do like using E-machines cases for custom builds. Nice strong cases if your looking at minimum hardware builds since they have only places for 2 cdrom drives, a floppy drive and 2 HD's. Quite adequate for cheap builds. I am constantly looking for them at the flea markets.
