My Duron 900 is being reported by SiSoft San as 125 deg C, And motherboard as 124 Deg C. Could this be true? apart from my Proccesor fan I have another internal fan and an exhaust fan in a PCI slot.

Could this be true? Very doubtful.

Those temeperatures are considerably above that of boiling water The CPU would have cut out before now and the motherboard would have burned out.

As far as Sisoft Sandra is concerned, I wouldn't even believe it if it told me my nickname on here was -pops-. I've often called this particular software panicware or scareware. Quite a good illustration of it doing that.

Have a look in your motherboard manual. It should tell you how to access your BIOS to get the real temperature. If it does turn out to be as high as that, then is the time to get worried.

In my bios I can find nothing about temps, have looked in the book but still no mention of temps. Any more ideas welcomed.

Well, in the absense of that, does the machine feel excessivly hot inside? Those temperatures would produce blistering burns if you touched anything as hot as that.

IN the Amibios you select advanced then System hardware Monitor and the temperature is in their.

-- has the answer really, though if the computer has run for a year or two, the CPU fan will need cleaning. Aerodynamically these lose a major part of their efficiency once they acquire a build-up of talc-fine dust.

In a spare moment switch off, get good access to the fan and ideally remove it from the heatsink.

Then brush and blow each blade (both sides) in turn until the shiny plastic is showing.

Put it back carefully on the heatsink and Bob's y'r Uncle.

Already tried that, also took power pack apart to clean that. looked again in bios, But no mention of temps anywhere! My PC has been switched off for over 2 hours now so it is nice and cold. As soon as I restarted I ran Speedfan and guess what? Yep! 124 & 125 Degs C . I guess that means perhaps its not as hot as I am led to believe. something stinks here, I will moniter the situation. Cheers

I was pretty much certain it wasn't as bad as you were being told. Try Belarc as suggested by mark e click here or, the one I prefer, Aida 32 click here which is more comprehensive. Both are free.
