CPU idles between 45-55 Celsius (when others have reported that this CPU should run about 40 celsius on max load.
System temperature is also high at around ~40 Celsius.
The graphics card temperature is 42 Celsius.
These numbers are all at idle, I haven't put a load on this system yet.
Coolermaster Centurion case, coolermaster 550 watt PSU, pentium 4 3.6 ghz cedar mill, 7800gt, asus p5wd2 mobo, all stock cooling. Even with stock cooling people "report" significantly cooler temperatures.
None of the heatsinks feel hot to the touch. All fans are spinning.
Are you sure that's celsius and not centigrade?
