Re: Average Operating Tempetures.
and even some cards and CPUs will do 90c and they're still well within their design limitations. People who get bent out of shape over high temps in some cases are just causing more headache for themselves.
Though for the more discerning people, here's some values I've noted over the years
Hard Drives - anywhere from 20-48*C is normal. Higher values on higher RPM drives are fine. Up to 65*C
Video Cards - anywhere from 30-80*C is normal. Higher than 90, depending on card, can be an indication of dust in the fan assembly. Take the shroud off and blow the card out, temps should return to normal.
CPUs - People go ape shit when temps are above 60*C. 60*C is a perfectly normal number for some generations, and Intel especially. If you have a CPU above 75*C then it's time to investigate why, but generally 30-60*C is normal.
