Hey i recently bought a E2220 Duel Core Intel Proc and went to monitor it with Speedfan AND CoreTemp. They both say it Idles around 40C, but when I play Games it shoots up to 65C (With about 90% usage) . So 2 things, Is this a safe temperature. And 2nd why would it be idleing at 40C and shoot up to 65C within a couple seconds. I am using the stock cooler and not over clocking at all.
65C with the stock cooler in a poorly cooled case is going to make it impossible to overclock, however it is ok (providing it doesn't get any hotter), since 70 C under load is where I would start to worry.
