Default My CPU Temp.

My CPU is a Pentium 4, 3.2 GHz. According to the motherboard utility I installed, the CPU's temperature is about 68 degrees Celsius. Is this a normal temp?

Is that the temperature on idle or load? If it's load, it's expected. But if that's idle, theres seriously something wrong.

That'd a little high even for a load temp for me.

the p4's did run notoriously hihg so it might be a good idea to take off the hsf and reapply thermal paste and hope that it cools down temps.

Sounds some what average but could be lower for the better, you have a CPU fan?
