More about : cpu temp question Mobius May 8, 2006 2:22:34 AM Anything under 70C or so is fine. 51C is not hot at all. The heat-death of integrated curcuits will begin to affect your machine, but that means the core will only last 3 years, and not the 15 it is rated for. linux_0 May 8, 2006 6:22:36 AM As Mobius and wusy said that temp is not bad. As long as it doesn't go above 65-70C for extended periods of time you should be fine.
