A friend brought there computer box to my house and we ran some test using SPEEDFAN to test CPU core heat.  Under no stress, the core runs at 48 degrees celsius.  When I run some CPU fitness tests, the CPU soars to 52 degrees celsius.  I am not sure how critical this is, but perhaps you know if this is a major issue. Please advise. Thx

Hi
That is a REGULAR temperature for CPU and there is NO probability of CPU overheating. As long as the cooler fans are doing their job there is nothing to worry.
