Question Is my cpu too hot?

When I restarted my computer after it was off for the night, I checked the cpu temperature in BIOS. It said the cpu was at about 42 degrees celcius, so I checked it again after running some games for a while to see how hot it gets (I played guild wars for an hour and a half, and then quickly restarted my computer to check the temperature in BIOS). It read 67degrees celcius. Is this too hot? Is The BIOS reading accurate? should I get another fan or something?

it's running a bit hot but it should be fine but it is a p4 so I would recommend that you get a better CPU fan...

i wouldn't worry about it. the BIOS are the best readings to check temps.

Wait a minute, Semprons top at 90c, so they wouldn't burn at 67c, but an Athlon topping at 63c is in danger.
So, to me it depends on your processor.
Anyway, I won't go past 60c, even with the Sempron...

EDIT: You posted a link to your system, then that Pentium is reaching it's top temp, so stop running it until you can fix it...
