i have an intel p4 processor 530j. and the mobo is a p5gdc by asus. ok so i researched around and found that intel p4 processors dont overheat, but slow down in speed as the temp. because too high. well my cpu idles at 40-45c when doing normal stuff like internet and stuff. when i play games, it shoots up but so far not more than 60c. i know this cuz on asus probe, i put the threshold for the cpu at 60c. and no error signs. so is this usable? i know its not the best, but can it be used like this.

ya, i know cpus are able to function at 60c, but i like lower just in case. cuz it shoots up to 57c when i play wolfenstein enemy territory. now i dont if it this is a graphic intense game which could cause the cpu to go higher if i do play an intense game. the thing is, that it idles at about 39c when doing nothin. and then it shoots up when playin games. i guess its good, but second opinons are better.
