  5. Are those temps at Idle? If they are you running hot.

    Also your Mainboard temp...i'm surprised it hasn't cooked yet.
  6. well i dont smell anything burning n the casing is cold to the touch ive removed half of the casing but that dint help much, as for idle i only got bitcommet runnin other wize its moslty surfing the net n all, virus scan runs in the background but tats about it the temp fluctuates between 50 - 60the mobo stays at 70 most of the time hard disk temp remains constant.
