Cool cpu temp. too hot?

sponsored links

 
I built a P4 2.0Ghz and every time i play games like JK2 or SOFII my cpu temperature goes to 47 degrees sometimes even 50. Is this normal? Or is it too hot for the CPU? When I bought the P4 it had a thermal interface material attached to the bottom, should i apply some thermal grease to see if that help or could I damage my P4??

My CPU is normally at 57-64C I shouldn't worry about it.

I've heard some run ok at 70+.

It's not too hot at all.
But which P4 2.0ghz CPU did you get? The old Willamette (256k cache, 0.18u) or the newer Northwood (512k cache, 0.13u)? If you got the newer P4, I think it's running abnormally hot. Usually, it runs much cooler than that if you've got a Northwood.
