Default Temperature

I have a P5B Deluxe Mobo and Core 2 Duo X6800. Currently mobo is at 102F
and CPU is at 120F.Just wondering at what temps should be worrying at.
Also if anyone has GeForce 8800 does yours seem to be a little warm cuz
mine kinda feels warm or its normal.

I think it's normal for an 8800 to feel warm. Those are powerful cards, so they produce quite a bit of heat. For the CPU, is that your idle or load temp. If load, that's ok, but if that's idle, you might want to invest in an aftermarket cooler. The motherboard temperature is fine though. Just worry if the CPU goes over 140F or 60C.
