My specs:
Asus P7H55D-M Evo
Core i5 760
4Gb Kingmax (2xDDR3 1333)
ATI Radeon HD 5570
Win 7 Ultimate 64bit Service pack 1

CPU normal: 40-45 degree (Celsius), HDD: 38-40

Today when I check with SpeedFan, It's about 55-60. Is that normal for my CPU? My HDD is still 39.

I think Service Pack 1 is the reason.

Can anyone help me? BTW, Is that a stupid build for gaming pc? Sorry for my bad English.

Hi nofear2161 :hello:  ...I think your system is O.K. & there ain't really anything wrong with it :)  ...Posts will come up & say that you ain't got enough ram for a x64 bit operating system & sure if you want to you can add twice as much ram ;)  ,but I would stick with what you have until you feel like upgrading or making a totally new gaming system ;)  ...For a start your cpu normal bit is quite high if it is idling at 40-45 degree celsius...What kind of cpu cooler have you got & also is it securely fastened to the backplate to make a tight bond so the thermal paste will work properly :pt1cable:  ...Also check staight away that the cpu cooler is not loose & also tighten up any screws that you can or pull it apart & replace it as tight as you can :)  ....My suggestion is only if your cpu is idling at 40-45 degrees celsius ;)  ...I have had in the past problems with my LGA775 pc when I updated to SP2 on my x32 bit vista ultimate system :pt1cable:  ...It did cause my ram meter on my gadget bar to be at a higher number or meter reading :pt1cable:  ...

Your mainboard is above the average for a Asus board & in the price range is usually higher than the asus pro range & you have a nice ATI radeon graphic card as well...Windows 7 x64 will give you good gaming & 4 GB's maybe a little low,but if you want you can add at least twice as much...

I'm using CoolerMaster Vortex Plus (It's said that that heatsink is for HTPC but I use it for game :(  I'm really noob)
My CPU usage is about 52% when I surfing on internet. It's about 25%-30% when I start Window (NOD32 run as startup). Is that normal? :( 

P/s: I really appreciate your help and I also need to improve my English too :wahoo: . You guy is really kind and nice.
