I don't think 45c is to hot for a Celeron P.C.

Hi Jove

45C is not abnormally high, but is not the optimum either. Different chips have different temperatures but as a rule of thumb, regularly over 50 is getting into the danger zone. Heat is the killer of any electronic component so COOLER IS BETTER.

Are theses temperatures under heavy load such as gaming or just browsing the web. Are you experiencing problems? Or just looking around at settings? With a 6% overclock my Celeron CPU runs at 29C with Pc wizard reporting under mild load. (Firefox, AIM, FAH, McAfee, PcWizard). As Robert posted too what does your cooling look like, how long has it been since you cleaned out your case, and have you ever re applied thermal compound to the CPU? It may help cool things down a bit.

I don't know much about it, but I would say that I have alot on the desk top, maybe alot of stuff running on msconfig services,
a fair amount of photo picture stuff, but this temp is for pretty much just sitting still and not running anything as below, etc..

Ther is one fan that works pretty good. I don't use games.
Processor temp; 30/C
Processor fan 3900rpm

Mainboard temp 44/C
Power/Aux temp 30/C
