Default Temperature in me puter

Right I am not overclocking or anything... but i was just looking on Aida and saw the following:-

Temperatures
Motherboard 38 °C (100 °F)
CPU 68 °C (154 °F)

Cooling Fans
CPU 4754 RPM

I am running an Athlon XP 1900+ and the CPU temp seems very high to me... I pretty much leave my puter on 24/7 and am worried that I may kill it if this carries on!

Is the CPU temp normal or shall I buy a better heatsink/fan tomorrow?

What should I be aiming for temp wise?

If your temp is actually 69C on the CPU you gotta get that sucker DOWN.
I suppose you can run it at that, but it's not healthy at all. Should keep it at or below 50C.

Download motherboard monitor to get a more accurate reading. If i'm not mistaken, the BIOS temp comes from the CPU Socket, not the CPU itself. (motherboard monitor will let you see both, and the case temp if you have the capability.

I think this could be b'coz of dust accumalation on the fan n' HS ... why don't ya clean up the fan n' HS ... maybe apply a new layer of artic silver ... n' then check the temps ..once again ...

If it still doesn't lower the temps ..then i would suggest going in for a new HS

My computer runs at ~44 degrees C idle and at 49 degrees after running 15 hours of Prime95.
You might want to check your heatsink. See if its fastened down good. Also check into using some Artic silver thermal paste. 68 degrees is way too hot, you're going to shorten the life of the processor.

I checked the bios... same reading... checked mobo monitor... same reading... oh did i mention that this was my idling temp!!!

i also noticed that the fan on the heatsink was fluctuating rather erratically in its RPM count... so I guess it isnt efficient any more... so I thought sod it and have just bought a nice new heatsink and fan! I turned my puter off for the first time in 2 months this morning and will install the new HS when i get home!

Cheers for the advice!

I recently cleaned my HS and Fan and drematically reduced the temp. I, like you, had wierd things happening with my fan but after I cleaned it it all works perfectly.
