I have a GIGABYTE GA-K8U-939 mobo and a amd athlon 64 3200+ cpu and also a hitachi deskstar sata II 1 tb hdd and ever since I started using this sata (had an older ata installed before)it seems like my system has been running hotter than before so my question is how hot is too hot for my cpu and mobo?
The cpu has been at 48c (the highest) and the mobo at 57c (highest) so should I be worried?

I'm also including a speccy snapshot if this help you help me...

That temperature is fine, the max is 65C. If want to be cooler try cleaning out the CPU fan and heatsink.

In addition to the above response and if you intend to use the current system for a while...

1. Getter a better (well-ventilated) cabinet/PC Case
2. Replace stock HSF with an aftermarket HSF

*HSF - Heat Sink Fan

Depending on the size of the case, you can this HSF which will help it cool down.
