    Hi...Just built my new system (specs below)...I was wondering what temp the cpu should be as I have'nt had much experience with hyperthreading. My temp from a cold boot-up is 30-31 c then it rises to a steady 35/36/37 c (internet browsing-unstressed). I never really paid much attention to cpu temps in the past so is this normal for a hyperthreader? Just curious...thanks...Colin. :) :)

    Anything upto 60C is ok. Above this and you should be looking at ways to improve ventilation/cooling around the cpu.
