Exclamation Heat Question?

I feel like my computer is very hot all the time, Is there a program that tells you how hot like everything is or something?

Speed Fan and Everest are two that come to mind.

Everest would be better. I think speed fan, tends to be inaccurate.

I just donwloaded Everest. I love the program, it shows everything about my PC, so whenever I need help or whatever it's there. It said my CPU temperature was 95 degrees (F). Is this normal for a Pentium 4 Processor? Is SpeedFan better with its diagnostics or Everest? Thanks!

Yea 95 should be alright for a P4. Everest is better than speedfan, period.

second everest

for optimum air flow:
make sure (if u got them) the front fan is blowing in, the back fan is blowing out. if u got a side fan, make it blow in. if u got a blow hole (top fan) it should be blowing out. get the dust off your heatsinks as well. that will do u alot of good.
