Default my processor

im currently using my hp desktop. the specs on it are:

amd athlon 3200xp+
512 pc2700
160gig 7200 rpm hd

i went to my bios to check my cpu temp and i found it suprising that my cpu ran really hot. the temp was 54 degrees celcius/129 degrees F. the cpu fan speed is 3590-3668rpm and the system fan speed is 1222-1231rpm. is this normal or is my cpu running too hot?

Are you using the stock hsf or an aftermarket hsf. It seems a little high, but mght be normal for stock hsf with out much case circulation. A good thermaltake hsf and some silver compound should bring those down. As well as some better circulation in your case.
