    idle or under load? I'd say no if at load, and maybe a tad bit warm if at idle.

    that's 44C, which isn't too bad.

    i use AIDA32 its just a overall summary program of your computer albsolutly the best...dont monitory temps but does tell you then..44c was at like 3days uptime, runing a few background progs but at time just on aim and offtopic ;)

    It depends on what cpu you have but I'd say your temps are fine. My Pentium 4 idles at about 46C.

    When I had the stock HSF on mine it idled at 25C :eek3:

    BTW, make sure you NEVER put a temp sensor between the processor and the heatsink, your temperatures will most likely double... and I know a lot of people who burned out their CPU's because they put a sensor there...

    I was one of them, burned out at 89C R.I.P. P4 :wtc:

    My temp sensor is on the bottom of the heatsink but to the side and not touching the processor. When my computer was brand new and I first saw the temperatures I was a little worried, but it runs stable and all my attempts at reducing the temperature have made no difference. So, I just figure as long as it's stable I shouldn't worry about it too much. :dunno:

    my rule of thumb is 50C is warm, 60C start worrying and shut the computer down. my load temps are 35C

    get a bigger heatsink if youre worried about it
