Hello, I've been asking people about the i5 2400 temperature range. When the comp is idle it gets around 38-40 celsius, but under load, and this is what worries me, it can get up to 61 celsius I've tested this a few times and it seems it doesn't really go up higher than that.

yeah I'm using the stock cooler, but I also added a cheapo case fan. But under load the CPU stays within the 50's its only when I'm playing Napoleon Total War that the CPU might go up to 60
