Operating temperatures question

  Rikardos 09:30 09 Jul 03

What's a good "average" operating temperature for a computer? I ask this because on my new computer the temperature varies from 35oC to 47oC and obviously this variation is quite a bit!

For info, my specs are:

Athlon 2800+
Sapphire Radeon 9700pro
Xaser III case
Asus Deluxe motherboard

Thats an excellent temperature for an Athlon. My xp2000 runs anywhere from 44c to 54c in the hot weather.

Feel a bit better now - it's the old "new computer" paranoia about anything and everything acting up methinks! Bit of reassurance is always welcome!
