My dually runs pretty hot, but its stable.

Temps usually in the low 50s, up to about 55C. (XP2100+s)

As a rule of thumb, under 50C is ideal, over 60C is way too hot.

I'd say even less then that - anything above 55 degrees at load is already too hot.

Anything past mid 40's at idle isn't super either.

But each to his own I suppose.

alright thanks. But does air circulation play a big part in it too? If so then i got 4 80mm fans in the front of the case blowing air in and only 1 80mm fan on the side of the case blowing it out. I am going to get another 60mm for the back of my case but until then is that enough? Because people say my computer is "damning" up with hot air.

Yes air flow will play a factor on your overall system temp. You need to have as much coming in as you have going out and vice versa. I got 2x80 in front 1 smart fan 2 in side sucking in 2x80 on top and 2x80's on back blowing out.

Air flow makes a HUGE difference. When I was running the AMD OEM cooler, I could still run 200 x 12.5 if I took the side of the case off and put a 10" floor fan pointing in the case. With that setup, I could hold 48 C running prime95. When I go to this one LAN party where the A/C sucks, I have to crank my FSB back down to 180 @ 1.65v or my temps get out of control. The ambient temp at the place gets up to 82 degrees sometimes!

Right now I have two 80mm front inlet fans, two rear 80mm exhaust fans, and two side mounted exhaust fans near the CPU/vidcard. I may reverse the side mount fans again (in inlet fans) as it seems to help my temps to blow fresh air in right there by the CPU/vidcard. I have a couple of open drive bays that I'm going to add fans to as well. Running the AMD OEM heatsink with that fan blowing on it really sold me on case ventilation.

Alright heres another idea. I have all these fans, stuff etc. and only a 350watt psu and that sits half and inch away from my cpu. when i took the side panel off my case and felt the psu i thought i could fry and egg on it. So could too much ambient heat being sucked in my fan onto the cpu make it hot. Well i decided thats the problem and am probaly going to get the antec tru550watt psu.
