I recently bought a P4 2.4 processor and had some questions regarding the CPU temperature. My hardware monitor reports the temp at about 38C for most of the time. As soon as I start running any kind of application that puts strain on the processor my temp skyrockets to around 50C. After I stop what I’m doing and let the computer sit it drops back down to 38C. Is this normal? If it isn’t what can I do to correct the problem? My computer has fantastic ventilation and while this is going on my MB and system temps don’t budge. Please Help.
