Default CPU Temperature

Is a CPU temperature between 23-29 degrees Celsius good? (AMD 3000+)

Wow...thats very good, and you won't really get lower than that anyway unless you really super cool it.

Mine is bad, but I'm not worrying really, but I do need some more coolant, and a new heatsink/fan:
I'm getting temps of around 50-53 degrees when working hard, and around 45 degrees idle...

Alot worse than your getting

but your temperature is normal, mines not

That must be rather loud...

I have 3 fans (inc CPU) but the case is open so the airflow isn't as good anyway... (I would close it, but my bros broke it )

No idea what the front 120mm fan speed is as its not plugged into motherboard, the same with the back fan, but my CPU fan speed at the moment is 6180RPM with 52degrees CPU temp.... ouch... though I'm running alot, but its still too hot!

I can have it on quiet mode, which i usually do, which lowers the CPU fan to around 3000RPM which is alot quieter, though the temperature also goes up by about 2 degrees...

Hehe, mines working hard at 54 degrees at the mo (3500+)... (put it on quiet mode)
I think I should be worrying really... so I better get a new CPU heastink/fan soon.

I don't notice the noise at all while I'm working, but if I fancy a quick game of counter strike at 3 in the morning, trying not to wake my dad, it sounds like a jet engine lol.
