    System Specs:
    Gigabyte P35-DS3L
    Intel E6750 2.66Ghz --> 3.2Ghz
    4x Crucial 1GB
    Retail heatsink/fan :hs:
    XFX 8800GTS 320mb Fatal1ty

    This is a temp log of CS:S I left the system overnight with XMBC running and its min temp was 54* and max temp was 67*

    I just posted one core because they're pretty similar.

    waaaaaaaaaaay too hot

    I wouldn't want to go above 50 on a CPU and maybe 70 on a GPU.

    Looks fine, failsafe temp cutoff for those chips is around 100C for the CPU and 120C for the GPU where damage occurs if it doesn't shut off the PC (automatically cut power) those components will be damaged above those respective temperatures

    I'd love -5* on both but that'd require me to get a heatsink on the GPU (it has a big plastic factory one) and a heatsink for the cpu (or lower the OC)

    The 8800GTS is a tad warm but still within safe limits. You can try dusting it out to see if temps improve a bit, or turn up the fan speed if you are worried.

    Installed RivaTuner and kicked the fan speeds to like 95% and threw a couple more mhz at the core/mem (660/1033) for the hell of it. Gained 5 fps (305) on CS:S Stress Test and the GPU sitting at about 72* under full load. :cool: (69* for processor)
