    a couple weeks ago, I put together a system (from TigerDirect in Miami) with
    a 2.9GHz celeron chip. Works fine, more than adaquate for my purposes, but I
    noticed that the chip runs a little hot (about 56 degrees C). I used the
    heatsink paste, and installed the fan and heatsink they sent as part of the
    kit. Is this a typical temp for this chip? I generally use AMD chips, which
    seem to run a little cooler, but the price on this package was just too good
    to ignore....

    that's not too hot. Unless it gets up into the 65 and higher range I
    wouldn't worry about trying to bring the temp down any more at this point.
