My new machine has an A-bit MB that monitirs the heat. the system
heat is usually around 85-90 degrees F, and the CPU runs between 105
and 115 F. the emergency shut off is at 185F.

At what temp should I start to worry?

When your ceiling tiles start to melt and drop molten plastic on your
keyboard...

The average CPU temperature in idle state is below 50 C (122 F);
167 degrees F while heavy loading.

Is the CPU temperature too high

50C would be ok for idle as long as it stayed under 60C at full load. The
key is consistently - It doesnt matter if your CPU is at 55C as long as it
would stay there if you left it on forever - this depends on reducing the
quantity of hot air in the case.

It was on Sun, 21 Dec 2003 18:50:52 +0000, just as I was halfway through a
large jam doughnut, that Stevecam wrote:
