I am new to all this and haven't tried any overclocking yet but am looking
too, I am currently using an AMD XP2600+ with the stock heatsink, the temp
idle middles at about 45 C it does reach peaks of 55 - 58 C

just wondering are these high peaks in the mid to late 50's normal or is it
a bit hot? I have never really considered the heat of a CPU before until now
so i am not too sure.

normally whnever i am surfing the net the computer gets to about 49 C and
the system to about 35 C, lowest it has been is 43 C for the CPU and 30 C
for the system

can anyone tell me if i should even bother overclocking or if these
temperatures are too high?

Normal with stock cooling.

These are fine, don't worry yourself, enjoy your computer and yes,
overclock if you wish, but then you might want to consider a better CPU
cooler and perhaps another chassis fan.

yeah ihave a 2500 barton and it seems to run idle at 48 C and when i
overclock it to 2800 equivalent and now runs at 52 C idle and wont
stay under 60C unless i have all 7 fans in my case going which is
quite loud..

I have the Gigabyte 7N400 pro 2, any suggestions on why it runs so
hot??
