In general when talking cpu temp 40c at idle and no more than 60C if at full load. But if you have a cpu temp at 40C or lower at idle your temp should only rise about 7 to 10C when under full load.

By full load I mean 100% cpu utilization and idle 5%

Again in general the same holds true for video cards and HDD,s.

Temp Monitor Application/Utility
4th Nov-2005

If you have the [Installation CD] on your motherboard – Browse thru the CD – It generally contains a Probe Utility for Measuring – [Voltages] – [Temperatures] – Fan Speed] –

Or go to your motherboard’s Web Site to find Utility – This should prove to be more accurate – They should have better detailed info on Sensing Diode & Contact Resistance & other Temperature Measuring Variables –

Just keep in mind – Only use/run [ 1 Utility at a time] – These readings are [Averaged] & running 2 of these Utilities at once – Will produce Erroneous Readings – (Generally in the [Fan Speeds] ) – and may set off an [Alarm] if one is setup –
