48c isnt to bad,who or what is telling you it is running too hot

CPU temp of around 48 is fine. AMD chips will run ok well above that.

48c is ok.

My Duron system with no additional cooling runs at 55c and has done for 3 years.

I believe the max temp for Duron is around 80C

My Athlon 3000 runs at 55c also.

Just another in the courus.

48 is fine. My CPu nowe at 48. Normally is around 46-50.

Do you have any other problems, that make you think it is too hot?

software program on mb disk,but did not specify what settings should be so i can adjust the setting up to say60 or 63c and it will be ok?

sorry forgot to add it is currently set at 50c

My Temp monitor 'default' setting for too hot is 60.

As you suggest, I would just bump the 'too hot' setting up to 60.

As others said, AMD CPU's should not suffer damage till the get near, or even over, 80. So a max of 60 should warn of impending trouble, before it is too late.
