Hello

I have a Dell XPS 420 which has the q6600 cpu inside. I have it oc'ed to 2.9ghz. The average core temperature for the cpu is between 38 degrees to 42 degrees just sitting idle.

Is this ok?

You should check out loads.

I would say anything under 65-70c should be "ok". Lower the better.

Ok, just checking. GPU went out couple of weeks ago. Watching the pc to make sure nothing else is going out.

Nominal, even very good, dependent on your room temperature.
