Default Noob with terminology problem.

I have just completed building my 1st pc since I was in 10th grade with the help of a co-worker. The only problem I am having is that he left to China for the month and now I need help, go figure.

Anyways the prob. I am having is that I have been reading...Ok that not it but as I read I keep hearing everyone talking about the pc runs at 28*c-35*c when at idial and 36*c-45*c with full load. Now does idial mean on stand-by or something else?

Any help is apprishated
thanks,
Dave

You can find out most things about your CPU, motherboard and main memory using CPU-Z.

Idle = 0% to 15% CPU usage,
Load = 15% to 85%,
Heavy load (gaming, or @Home projects) 85% to 100%,

Intense load = 100% for 24 hours or more, this tests stability.
