HI!! Can anyone tell me if the temps. in my pc is normal????

-AMD Phenom II x2 550 3.1ghz no OC 35c idle......63c under heavy load

-HDD 35c idle.........48c heavy load

-Geforce 9600gto 1gb ddr3 45c idle.........58c heavy load

-TMPIN0 38c idle............65c heavyload

-TMPIN1 29c idle.............40c heavy load



P.S I DONT KNOW WHAT IS TMPIN0 AND TMPIN1!!!

PLZ REPLY
 
Looks like you could use a little more case cooling but they are all acceptable temps. I like to keep my hard drives under 40c but everything else looks good.

TMPIN0 is most likely northbridge
TMPIN1 is most likely the case temp

ohhh ok kool, i have an 8 inch fan to the side of the case, 120mm to the back and a 120mm in the front...............the front pulls in air and the side and back pulls out air of the case.
Do i need more??????

First, if your using the stock heatsink those temps are to be expected, especialy since you seem to either have high ambient temp or poor case flow judging by most of your components. Second, if you have a side fan pulling air out instead of pushing in, it and the cpu fan are pulling air opposite directions of each other, not really a good thing for airflow.
