Ok I built my first computer gaming rig and am trying to find out if these temps. are good, ok or bad. I have done alot of research on the web but each build is different in one way or another so here is my build and temps:

Cooler Master HAF 932 Case

EVGA 750i FTW Mobo

EVGA GTX260 SO 216 ( Not OC ) at the moment

Intel CPU Q6600 ( Not OC ) at the moment

Corsair TX 750W PSU

G.Skill 4Gb RAM

WD Caviar Black 1TB 7200 RPM SATA

Asus 22X22 SATA DVD Drive

Windows XP Pro SP3 ( 32 bit )

The CPU Temps. Idle are between 45c and 50c and at load during gaming the highest iv'e seen it is 63c.

The GPU Temps. Idle are between 47c and 50c and at load during gaming the highest iv'e seen it is 74c.

I am getting a after market cooler for the CPU in the near future and all fan speeds are on auto at the moment. Also it's hot in my room right now due to a heat wave thats coming through.

The build was a budget build to btw.

You are fine here. The max temp on the CPU is 72c and the GPU 90-100c. Aftermarket coolers will do even better. Hope this helps.

Yes it does thank you! See I just put this thing together and I know idealy you want the temps to be as low as you can get them but I am on a tight budget and couldn't get the aftermarket cooler I have my eye on right now. So I just wanted to be sure that I'm ok in the mean time.

Thanx

I know what you mean. I built mine on a budget too and i'm still upgrading on a budget.
