    Default Average or hot?

    Got the desktop working recently, but I'm a tad concerned, the CPU at idle sits in the 29-32C range and goes up to about 40C when I'm playing Microsoft Train Simulator with Folding@Home and other apps in the background. The CPU is at stock speeds and Rambo says his maxes at 45C and his is at 3.03GHz.

    Do I need a case fan to help get the air circulating in the tower box?

    What's your complete run-down of system components?

    Do you have more voltage going through your proc than his?

    ~40C isn't too much to worry about.
