I just got my system finally up and running. I have an Asus A7M266, and according to the AsusPCProbe my cpu's temp is 107 F. That seems super hot. Where exactly do I go to cool down my cpu? I have a Volcano II on my Athlon, but do I change those settings in the bios or in the AsusPCProbe?

I wish mine have that temp!

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
It's not a good idea to let those T-Bird chips run hot. They burn out easily if not properly cooled. And system temperature is highly important as well. To solve ongoing problems simply make sure to have a good intake fan on the front of the case and a good exhaust fan on the back to blow the hot air out.
Another good way to cool the CPU is to get circular IDE/SCSI cables which allow for better airflow, they let air pass thru the case faster.

my system is almost identical to yours and when i first booted it up it was running at 60 case closed (front intake fan and heatsinkfan only). then i put in a rear fan and now it's running at 50...i'm still trying to get it lower, but i'm out of ideas...
so, i'm sure 40 degrees is not much to worry about.
what kind of heatsink do you use? I have a Volcano II, but I used the thermal pad it came with on it, but I've been thinking about getting that artic silver and seeing how that does. I've heard it can reduce temps by 5 degrees.
