I have an Athlon 2400 XP which is running at 55C is this OK? The fan/heat sink was supplied with the CPU retail. If temp too high what is the best solution?

Just a wee bit hot but 50 or under should be OK

this appears fairly typical for an athlon xp cpu

Thanks everyone for your comments. The temperature seems to have stabilised at about45C now.

well within tollerance mate. If you are concened, maybe invest in a couple of case fans one inlet and 2 outlets

its within safe limits but at this time of year less than 40C is normal

my xp2400 systems have cpu temps of 36C at the moment.

look at case fans/airflow/location of case: near radiator?

basically you want to suck cold air in at the front bottom and expel it from top rear.

make sure cpu and case fans are not clogged with dust.

Depends on the workload, let it idle and see what the temp does.
