CPU Temperatures

I was reading through various posting when I found a number querying CPU temperatures which made me think about mine.

I have an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ which, according to Everest, idles at about 46*C with a fan speed of about 4100 RPM. When I`m rendering video I have seen this go to about 58*C with a fan speed over 5200 RPM.

The Motherboard never seems to go above 36*C and the hds 41*C. The chipset fan seems to run almost constantly at about 8900 RPM. I have no indication of case or GPU fan speeds.

Would this be normal and acceptable? I ask because of problems rendering video with Pinnacle and wodered if the true difficulties were with temperature protection cutting in.

Seems OK to me, i.e. not excessively high.

Thanks for your input.

The AMD information is very interesting and makes me wonder about the value of the figures provided by the software. It does indicate a level of salesmanship in some ways.... Your PC is hot buy cooling devices!! On the other hand temperatures could be approaching critical and you may never know.

But I`m not sure my cynicism is well founded.

Thanks again.
