Default P4 3.2 temps?

Hey, I've had my comp for a while, 7months or so and I was wondering if my temps were ok. I'm running my CPU at 42c idle and my MB at 32. At full load it can get up to 60c CPU and 40c MB. I have a coolermaster case with 4 fans, 2 front, 1 back, 1 top and I'm thinking the top fan is not working enough....I just bought a new one and I hope this will solve the problem, if there is one. Thanks guys.

yea u have a cooling problem. Ur gonna need to get a better CPU fan. 60C= around 140 degrees F. If it gets 10F more degrees hotter it will shut off since it will be too hot. Ur gonna need to eaither get water cooling or a better CPU fan.

You should check to see if your fans are blowing in the right direction. What i mean is that all of your fans can't be trying to blow air OUT of the case, some will need to blow air into the case in order to get good circulation.
