CPU 3,2Ghz to hot?
Hello Peeps,

I just installed a Abit IC7-MAX3 motherboard with a Intel 3,2Ghz CPU and with a Zalman cooler.


When I get in Bios, and check PC Health I have a CPU temp of 60C (idle)

Is this to hot? I think this cooler was one of the best...
When I play Battlefield 1942 the temp raise to almost 67C.

Yes the cooler is installed correctly and yes I used coolpaste.

Please help...

Idle -> 55C
