with my xp1700 normal temp is 35-40 degrees and after lots of use it goes up to 50-55 max

my tower is packed as well with 3 cd drives,2 hard drives etc so i gess if i had a bigger tower withj more space in it for air to circulate i would get lower temps.

What about MAINBOARD temp?

Should that be lower than CPU temp.

As we speak my mainboard temp is 63 degrees C
Cpu temp is about 50 degrees C

OH yea, it's been proven that updating your bios might help lower your cpu temp.
