I finished building my pc last week and since then have downloaded h monitor. It is showing a cpu temp of 48-52 and a mainboard temp of 29. Is this about right? It is a athlon 2000xp with just the standard heatsink and fan.

This is pretty cool. Anything up to 60 is OK.

Thanks for the reply MalcSP. I just thought it seemed a little on the high side.

STEVE71163, that is an exellent temp. for this CPU, and you need have no worries. J.

Just out of interest, how do you find what the temperature is? Can this be done for components other than the CPU?

I use Win 98SE and an Athlon 600.

stlucia I have downloaded H monitor which checks your cpu temp + motherboard etc. But check first it is compatible with your motherboard.

Also your M/Board itself may have the facility, if so go in to BIOS and have a look.

where can you get a program which tells you the temperature of the CPU and motherboard?
