Go to the site of the manufacturer of your processor; there, you will find a min-max range of temperatures for the specific model. If 146 F is within that range, you are OK.

Find info here:
The recommended maximum internal chassis temperature for systems based on the boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor 2.80 GHz (and below) is 40░C. For systems based on the boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor 3 GHz (and above), the recommended maximum internal chassis temperature is 38░C. (Note: Set points vary on boxed fan heatsinks due to processor technology.)

More info on the page:
http://support.intel.com/support/processor...b/CS-007989.htm

Also see:

Intel« Pentium« 4 Processor
Thermal Management
http://support.intel.com/support/processor...b/CS-007999.htm

See this page too:
"Many people may be running a software package or using their BIOS setup program, which is telling them the processor is running warmer than normal. Many times, these programs and/or BIOS setup programs may be wrong. Therefore, if you do not feel a large amount of heat coming from the processor and heat sink, then the processor is probably not overheating."

Internal CHassis means the inside of the Tower right not the actual surface temp of the cpu?

As far as I know yes but you should also be able to see CPU temp and Motherboard temp using a program such as everest.

If you want to download and use Everest get version 1.51, the last free version that had the software catagory here:
http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=everesthome

The newer versions do not have the software catagory and the free version has been discontinued on the Lavalys site.

146║ F is equivalent to 63║ C - that's pretty darned hot! This also depends on if your P4 is a Prescott or not (the Prescott's run hotter than the others).

My P4 Prescott runs about 50║ C during normal operations - haven't ever checked it while gaming. FWIW - I've got a ThermalRight SP-94 cooler with a 92 mm fan and ducted outside air blowing on the processor.

The problem is...the more heat, the more quickly the processor degrades.
