Just built my new beastie: Abit BE7 (845PE) DDR333 P4 2.4 PC533 "Northwood" Have not installed O/S yet, just run it up to check BIOS & temps. Im sure the temps are ok - just need a bit of reasurance from you chaps. (without case fan) CPU temp 45 deg C system temp 40deg C with case fan) CPU temp 40 deg C system temp 30 deg C As the case fan is too noisey for the wife to bear, are temps "normal" for this CPU to run at 45 deg? (obviously higher than my old P3 & AMD 950). The manual does say temp warning is default at 75 deg C, so am I just being too finicky?
