Default General processor speed?

I have a P4 3.0 630

It runs idle at about 36 degrees with just a stock sync and some artic 5. For some reason in uguru when I play a game like WoW though it speeds up to like 60 until I minimize then it goes back down. 59 is actually the highest I have seen it. Is this ok?

How bout your temps and aftermarket coolers?

Prescott core. Same as me. Made for heat, so you should be fine. I think. Wait for other input, but I play games much more demanding then wow, and my fully stock CPU (same CPU as yours) and it works fine.

Those temps seem pretty normal. Think about adding a fan or two, if your worried about it.
