I wonder if you can help me out. I recently built a new PC and its a complete dream to work with.
I've got an AMD Athlon 2800+ with 2 coolsermaster case cooling fans (both blowing air out). I've installed "MotherBaord monitor 5" and have made sure it is 100% accurate and it shows that my CPU temperature is about 52-54 degrees when idle in windows and while playing Unreal Tournament 2003 it reaches about 57-59 degrees.
I know its the hottest day of the year in London, but is this temperature normal for an Athlon 2800+ with 2 cooling fans? I wanted to know whats a dangerous temperature for my CPU, as in at what temperature will it be harmed, damaged and effect performance?
