Yea thats fine. You can go to 55-60C before you really worry. It aint recommended or anything, but you can.

System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

My penis is bigger than yours.

anywhere up to 60 for me id fine but once you cross that line i think you should worrie. Although Microbell he he begs to differ by being up to 75 is a safe temp becuase thats where they self shut down but i still think thats to high so we have agreed to disagree. good old bell should eat him like a big mac

My computer had a good amount of dust in it (that I will clean after I post this). Is this the reason why it randomly shuts down? How can I adjust the temp for my computer?

do you have an XP1500+ or is it actually an athlon thunderbird 1.333Mhz? the difference in normal operating temperatures are different. either way i say a 1.4Ghz is a pretty moderate overclock, push that sucker harder
