yes 57c is high for a 700 duron
my 800 runs at 38 -40 max C
What kind of fan are you using??
Make sure its a high quality fan
maybe its not on properly..
But i would suggest carefully checking the heatsink out and also make sure you have a quality fan
My fan was $20 a coolermaster but mine is the larger one vertifies for 1200+ tbirds

high is a relative term.. could you run at this speed? Yes... its probably a better idea to get a nice fan for it and overclock it.. but you can run at up to.. what is it? near 190 degrees Faranheit without melting it

Yo that's a hella hot for a duron 700.
my T-bird 700 @ 800mhz will never break 45c full load
and idle is usually 35-40 depending on room temp.
U need to get a better HSF and add some Paste to ur cpu.
if temps persists then its the room your in, take the temps in the room your computer occupies!
