60C seems a bit hot. I have a utility that monitors the CPU temperature continuously. Mine is running at 25C just now. Sometimes, when it's busy, it gets to 31C

Gazbut,
I have a xp2600+ it runs at 35c under load.

the gigabyte utility has set the threshold at 55c so I would think you need Either new Thermal paste or a better fan.

I am running xp2000 & my temp is 63, 64 if you have a problem at 60 i must be frying my system i just looked into asusprob & its running at 61 but when the temp was higher outside i was running at 63 64 what do i need to do as this system is only 2yr old do they start getting hotter as they get older or has something gone drasticly wrong. landcruiser.

there isnt an ideal temp, if its stable then thats good enough. 60C is perfectly ok and indeed my 2400+ (on a 400MHz FSB isnt set to shut off until it hits 65C)

Anyone that manages to keep there Athlon below 35C under full load obviously isnt just using a single fan on a heatsink. My PC has a dual fan PSU, 2 80mm extractor fans, a copper heat sink and a 26CFM fan on it and my case temp is 33C with my Athlon currently at 54.5C (full load) room temp is 24C.

Go into bios and set it to shut at 70c
