I have an HP 800mhz computer with 384mb ram. In SiSoft Sandra 2001 it says my CPU temperatures are around 200F. Is this safe?? I've seen people talk about their temperatures and they are like around 40-80F. My computer is all stock. Except the ram

That's pretty darned warm. Make sure the HSF is properly attached. It may have come loose.

another thing


I've seen people talk about their temperatures and they are like around 40-80F.

would be more like 40-80C
though 80 is damn hot..
I would be comfortable with 40-60C
anytihng above that, I'd get a lil concerned..
that's for Athlons though..dunno, how hot Intels Run..
