I just did some case mods and was wondering if these temperatures are acceptable.

Celeron 2 633MHz@950MHz 2.3V
When idle MB: 28C, CPU 29C, Room: 22C
With load MB: 31C, CPU: 44C, Room 22C

Do you think this thing will work in a non AC room?
Woaaaaaaaaaa man lower that voltage. 2.3v will fry that poor celeron soon. 2.0v MAX w/ good cooling on a celeron. 44ºC is a bit high try to get to 40 or lower.
What HSF are you using?
decent temps, but insane voltage. Lower the voltage a lot and try burning the chip in.
I will explain my high voltage.
at 1.95 - 2.1V i get illegal operations or math calculation errors using Hot CPU Tester 2 Lite. I am currently testing 2.2V again, I expect a math error in a hour or 2.

BTW I am using a noname cheapo HSF, cost me $5.50 CDN. The packaging says the fan has a high CFM fan. I am using aluminum thermal compound.
