my idle cpu temperature = 55 degrees celsius, and its not even overclocked
i have amd 1.2ghz and MSI k7t turbo limited edition motherboard.
also computer is very unstable.
Well I bet your running off the stock hsf. Go to SVC and pick up a Golden Gate with the fan of your choice, if your temps are that high, you may want to get the Delta, but i will warn you its loud. Also get some Artic Silver II thermal paste. This combo could bring you down as much as 10 degrees. You also need to remember that those temperature sensors are not always accurate. If its anything like the Asus probe than it is definatly not accurate.
