Yeah I had a 550mhz and I had it running at 100 degrees and when i fired up my brand new system i saw 130!!!! i was scared as hell!!! I called the guy who sold me my new motherboard and he said 130 was ok??!?!?!?!?!? He said 150 was the danger zone. So....yeah ok heres my setup. I have a midtower case and a hard drive cooler with no hard drive in the slot under the cd rom. I got an 80mm where my floppy drives would be and got my hard drive under that. I currently have no fan sucking in air through the bottom. I got a pretty big dual fan setup on the cpu. They are piggy back style....and i got an 80mm sucking air out. Now i think my cooling isnt as organized and i have many little "nether regions" that dont allow smooth airflow but im trying to find a solution. Anyone else hads theses case temps TELL ME SO I DONT HAVE TO WORRY!!!
