How hot should a p4 2.0ghz 512k cache run at? Mine runs at 50C with a fan that runs at about 4200rpm.

50 celcius is a little high for a P4, but nothing to worry about. If you're sure the heatsink is mounted properly, your hardware monitor may not be accurate. Also be sure to have 1 case fan in front and 1 in back for good air circulation.

What temp should it be running at and should I get a faster fan to accomplish this temp?

My P4 was hitting 70c under full load a while back, I wouldn't worry about 50c :wink:
