Default CPU temperatures, normal ranges

So in my BIOS it's showing two different temperatures, one for the CPU, at 80 celsius, and the other for the MD at 32 celsius.

I just overclocked my nvidia video card, and was wondering if I should be worried about the latter one. Is there a website that displays the normal ranges?

Thanks, Jake.

Both Speedfan and BIOS said so. Both of them can't be wrong. Intel and NVIDIA are known for running at higher temps. I seem to have resolved the problem though- a program called cpuidle got it down to 50C. I'm also trying out CPUcool, and a couple progs called Rain and Waterfall that I found over at Majorgeeks.

My computer used to do this once in a while. Start it, look at temp program, and it would say 79*C. Then say like 20*C after I restarted.

I up-dated my BIOS, and it now shows correct temps.

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870
