I just assembled a Celeron 700 system, what is the normal/safe CPU temperature?

More about : cpu temperature

actually it has been running 70C since I built it. It gets up to about 100c and seems to be pretty stable there.

The heat sink/fan and CPU did not come with thermal grease do you think this is the reason?

I am not running a case fan either, just a CPU fan, and of course the power supply.

This is far too hot, it should be running no more than 55C max. Get some thermal paste, at the least!

Geeze! Putting the heat sink on without any sort of a thermal paste! He he he. That's just crazy!

Though I guess it's good (?) to know that it can run stably at 100C.

I wouldn't have believed it.

Speaking of crazy ... I wonder what my company's low temperature device could do for a computer. We can run it stable at 100K to cool a crystal for x-ray analysis. Though you'd have to do some freaky stuff to get the nozzel to point at the CPU inside of the case... And you'd need a clean air compressor and a tank of liquid nitrogen by your computer all of the time. But just think of the possabilities... I mean 100K!
