Mine runs at 52C. I think this is little hot though due to the fact my PC is sat inside a cupboard and backed up against a wall so theres not alot of ventilation ... my own fault really.

41 is a respectable temperature. As long as you know what you are doing there is nothing stopping you from OCing your PC.

my pc runs at a nice cool 27C idle and 34C playing games.

fair bit of overclocking done to it :D

rarely goes over 38C.

hardcore cooling there, my 35-52 pc doesn't even have a case fan though (just a cpu heatsink/fan)

p4 2.4ghz running at 2.61ghz CPU temp 34 at idle .... 50 during full load. My motherboard reads my system temp wrong but reads my CPU temp properly (or so i believe theres no way to be sure).

To optimise flow, you need the same amount of air going in as out.

I have 2 80mm at the back, 1 at the front and side.

Keeps the flow equal ... think I need to move it out of the cupboard though.

Depends on the CPU. Bartons have almost double the transistors of other Athlons (due to larger cache) and therefore run hotter 55 normal and 68C under load and are designed to run at around this speed stable. However older Athlons should aim for 35 to 50 C (I think).

Dust can be a problem if you don’t have a filter on the intake like I do. I don’t have a fan blowing air in cos I like a quite PC but what I have done that helps is remove the cover from a blank CD Drive plate at the top of the case (ugly I know) and this dramatically reducers the ambient temperature recorded by 2 sensors on by motherboard and one other sensor on my 6800 graphics card.....YES YES I know this is incorrect air flow according to literature but it works better. The orthodox way as you know is fans at the top back and one fan at the bottom front with filter HOWEVER I find the top right of the case gets really hot and this traditional method is faulty (that’s why a new standard is planned).

The only risk is that there is reduced air flow over the HD but I dont think its a problem.

that helps. i have only just got my athlon XP 2600 and currently running at just under 2 ghz at 41C . i wouldnt mind over clocking a bit but was jus worried about temp because i dont want to damage anything. i have a athlon xp 2000 running at 1700 at 54C . should i over clock??

I dont think you will get much of a boost from a CPU overclock but try 100Mhz and see. If your games are running slow you try overclocking your graphics card.

Good luck.
