My CPU usually idles around 50c. Is this an ok temp or not? Every game I play crashes after a while and i'm wondering if it's to do with the heat.

Motherboard - 32c
GPU - 40c
GPU Ambient - 34c
HardDrive - 33c

They all idle at about that

Well. what processor you have? The games crashing doesn't have anything doing with the heat. When Intel started the P4 era.. when the cpu gets to a certain temp.. (im not sure which exact temp).. but it will shut itself off when it gets there. When I built my computer.. I didn't have the HSF on all the way and the cpu got to 93C!!! ahh lol. After more messin wit the HSF.. I got it to be at about 51C. But I play games , like intense ones and the CPU only gets up to 53C. The motherboard I have has software to give me this info! It's nice.

It's an ok temp. If it gets to around 60C it can be a problem.. The computer might shut off.. but if you don't experience your computer shutting off on you, it's ok.

What do you think the problem could be then? Bad power supply? It's 320w but i'm not sure of the quality.

Well. It could be your PSU. Maybe 320W is too less for your system. I have an P4 3.4 GHz w/ HT .. and I have a 450W Dual Fan PSU.

You should tell us the load temps they are what important use prime 95 or folding at home to get a good load on the cpu and then tell us the temps.
