I went into the BIOS and raised the Front Side Bus From 800 MHz to 900 MHz. When I did this, I played some games and then noticed my CPU was at 45 Celcius. 44 on the first core and 45 on the second core. Is this too hot and what temperatures should I be concerned about?

Hello,

No 45° C is not too hot, it's actually pretty normal. On the other hand, if the temp gets to be 60-70° C, I'd start to worry.

Regards,

Ax

Okay Thanks. I also turned up all the fans to 100 percent all the time which lowered the temperature to about 35 Celcius. Is turning all the fans on 100% all the time bad for the fans or my computer?

I don't think so, it may get a bit loud though if you have a lot of fans. You might want to just set them higher if you know you'll be doing gaming or other processor intensive tasks.
